Distress Inks by Tim Holtz are perfect for adding a vintage, stained, or aged effect to your altered books, scrapbook pages, cards and paper craft projects. These hand-selected colors were developed to produce a realistic, weathered look on paper, photos and decorative fibers. Get the vintage look and feel without the mixing and mess of tea stain or walnut ink!
This is a high octane yellow. The reason why it works is it has a little little shift toward orange. Most would not see it at all. Yellows are always so transparent which makes it so hard to get a bright color. Mustard Seed is the perfect solution for a yellow that pops, holds its own, yet stays true. The lids on this stamp pad vary wildly -- some are even pastel -- do not be fooled because this is a bright almost neon color. In case you need specifics the mustard you get out of the squeeze bottle is yellower but not by much. I use the stamp pad primarily for blending with Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Rusty Hinge. If you do Tim's trick of smearing the pad on a craft mat you can paint in lemons, suns, and the like. I also love to make blended sunsets for all those popular botanical silhouette stamps (checkout YouTube). Mustard Yellow is a nice ink pad to have around, maybe not a primary buy since so few things are bright yellow.
When I saw a project on ......GinaKDesigns, (don't know if I am allowed to use GKD name) I thought... "How did she do that" I Hop in the car, went to several crafting stores, with no luck. This product in wonderful, It is so easy to use, I love it. I will be collecting all of the colors to experiment with.

Another winner from Tim Holtz. This is a soft yellow that doesn't look washed out. I use it a lot. Makes for a great sunny background.
