Default New Spring Distress ink colors are gorgeous !!

Today I got my new Distress ink limited edition Spring colors and they are all gorgeous!! I love all three of them . In my opinion they are the best colors of the three limited edition sets so far

I use them for water coloring so I bought the reinkers too

In addition to the actual colors if you blend the Squeezed Lemonade and the Peacock Feathers you get a "mint green" that simply beautiful !!

Then if you blend the Squeezed lemonade and the Lilac Shades you get a very subtle sage color that I think I like better than Bundled sage.

I never had any art training so I am often surprised to see the colors I get when I blend them

Oh, Yay! So glad to hear that. I'm waiting for mine from Marco's Paper. I got the special deal set that included the new pads and all the reinkers for a great price (not sure if I'm allowed to state the price here). I was a little hesitant about ordering the pads as I was a little disapointed with the winter set but I'm hearing nothing but good things about this set. Hehe, I also ordered an extra Seedless Preserves reinker since I really love that purple.

Ooooh I can't wait.

The color samples provided by Ranger for the Spring colors are not very accurate.

On the Ranger sample of the Squeezed Lemonade looks like a gold when in fact it is a Daffodil Yellow.

The Shaded Lilac looks like a grayish lilac when it is really the Lilac you would use to color a Hydrangea

The Peacock Feathers color sample is quite close, but when you water it down it is a beautiful light teal.

I think the spring set is the best out of the other limited edition sets too. I love all the colors, definitely must haves!

Oooh, that teal sounds great! So with those three you've got yellow, lilac, teal and green. Add a touch of pink and your all set for coloring cute little Easter Eggs!

Still waiting for mine to arrive but glad to know I'll probably love them when they do! Enjoy your new pretty colors. I didn't get any of the previous sets because they didn't have reinkers. Now bummed about that.

I ordered mine from Oozak. He got in a second batch of both the pads and reinkers and still has some left. He has all the reinkers including the colors from the Fall & Winter collections
If you order from Oozak by 3:00 Eastern time he ships the same day. It took me two days to get mine . Oozak is in Michigan I am in Wisconsin. If you are farther away it may take 3 days

Be sure to log in to get the best price. Free shipping if you spend $50
LOVE OOZAK

I got mine this weekend and love all 3 colors. I am thrilled to have a more "yellow" yellow color than the mustard seed color..

Just got mine today ... hand delivered to me at work by the Scrapbooking Cafe Online! Now that's customer service ... delivery to the door. I couldn't wait until I got home so I opened them and just smooshed them against a sheet of typing paper. Beautiful colours! Can't wait to do something "real" with them

I love them as well. I made this card. Unfortunately you can not see how vivid the colors are in the photo. http://paperflowers1.blogspot.com/20...ress-inks.html

I watched OhMyCrafts to have a $1.95 S&H special & combined it with a 20% coupon Mother's Day coupon.

Got the pads & reinkers plus a Picket Fence distress stain & marker. It took 8 days to get all, but I didn't think that was bad, considering the distress stain was out of stock. Worth the wait... Lovin' those new colors.

I'm waiting for them to get the Fall & Winter set reinkers. Thought they wouldn't be offering the reinkers for them until that season rolled around again. Maybe since they've satisfied us with those reinkers, there will be more new exciting colors next fall.

Wondering if the seasonal colors will ever be offered as markers.
