The mini ink pads are my favorite and I love the new colors. The Cracked Pistachio is the prefect mint, which is hard to find. I also love the Abandoned Coral and the Mermaid Lagoon. You can't beat Distress Inks for techniques and I'm thrilled to have the first mini kit with the new colors for 2015.
The lids are tight the first time you try to open them (I had to pry one off with a paper piercer), but they get easier with use. Tim Holtz said Ranger received complaints of the lids falling off the previous minis, so they had to tighten them. That's why you'll find they are a little harder to deal with. Other than that, the ink pads were all the same kinds of wonderful that Tim's distress pads always are!
I only ordered one of these because I wanted to try them out before I bought a set. I watched several tutorials before I purchased.
I have dabbled in watercolor prior to ordering, but that and the tutorials and the beautiful colors are what got me to try this brand. They are awesome, so I bought the remaining colors from another vendor at a much lower price. If scrapbook.com had a price matching feature, I would have bought them here.
The Distress Inks a fun to play with, when I master these I look forward to creating a set of the Oxide Inks.
I am loving learning with these AWESOME inks that work for waterfcolor!
