This has got to be my favorite distress ink. You can use it for gothy/alternative pages, as well as soft baby pages. It's great for boy and girl pages too, and especially for geneology pages. I absolutely love it! I like these inks because they are easy to use. You can get a pretty straight frame on a page just by rubbing it along the side of the paper.
This ink adds a nice sepia effect with white which is great for heritage pages! Another must have in your scrapbook supply!

I was looking for a ink pad that would darken the edges like tea dye does so well but isn't red brown rust colored. Unfortunately I went with the lid color and the extolled virtues of various artists on-line. Antique Linen is a neutral off-white and a little cool (instead of warm like tea dye). It is very light and because of this even more transparent. On the plus side it does knock back white-whites which I love, and I've saved some blending near mistakes with a top layer of Antique Linen… but it is not the edging ink I was hoping for. I've gone to Gathered Twigs for a cooler brown but I have to be super careful not to use too much or it gets really dark really fast.
This is a great ink if you need a dark yellow / light brown color, and I've used it on a lot of baby pages. While it does not make the bold statement that a darker ink can, this adds a nice subtle distressed color.

I am just getting into antiquing and stamping. This is my first distress ink. It will not be my last. I watched a few of the videos Tim put out about edging paper using a sponge and a craft map. The technique is wonderful and adds another dimension to your projects. The color is subtle and not overpowering. It can be blended easily with other colors to add more depth to your project.

I use this color frequently for distressing the edges of my paper. I have the little one, but decided I needed the large size for a big project.
My original ink pad arrived damaged. A quick email to customer service solved my problem right away! They shipped me a new one!
