Default What is you fav Green ink

For Christmas ..trees..wreaths and the like? It seems like every one I have is either too bright , too green or too brownish. Just wondering if there is a good "winter" green out there any one can reccommend.

I like Garden Green from SU. I don't know if they even make it anymore, but it's a nice shade.

I love "pine" from Ancient Page. I have several Ancient Page ink pads that are many years old and still very juicy. Haven't seen Ancient Page in my local stores lately, but I know you can find them online. That's my favorite color for Christmas trees!

I did a quick search and found the Ancient Page Pine pad available at several online stores:

Ancient Page Archival Dye Ink Pads and Re-Inker Bottles At A Discount

Ancient Page Dye Inks - Pine

Stamp iT! Product Offerings and Brands we Carry

You can also check Ebay, as I've seen reinkers sold there and sometimes Ancient Page pads, too.

I like Close to my Heart's New England Ivy... Just a lovely dark warm green. I love it for holly berry leaves especially!

Yes, they still make it. I just bought one in November. That is also my favorite for Christmas colors. I have gone through a lot of the Garden Green cardstock.

The two new greens in the Distress Ink winter line are marvelous for trees. I've used them both and love em. I also like the Ancient Page Pine and CTMH has a really dark green that I like too. I believe Ancient Page isn't being made anymore which is too bad because they are really good inks. Great colors and really juicy.

Another vote for the Close to my Heart New England Ivy. It's a really nice evergreen tree color. You can get an idea of what it looks like my searching "New England Ivy" in the gallery.

I've been worried that it's been so difficult to find Ancient Page and I will be sad if they discontinue it. Clearsnap still shows it on their product list online, but I am disappointed that I can no longer find it in most stores (I think I used to buy it at Hobby Lobby and the pads were not very expensive). Some of the pads I have are several years old and still very juicy, so I really think it's a good product. I found some reinkers for a really good price on Ebay and decided to stock up, just in case!
