I didn't see this one coming. My prediction way back in March was for a light tan as a brown. I knew there'd be a brown but thought it would go light rather than dark.
With this release announcement, Ranger now has another 4 colors to release another round of the "mini" Distress pads. While I originally, thought I'd buy them in this form as they were released, now I'm not so sure. The next 4 minis would be a 4 pack with Twisted Citron, Hickory Smoke, Blueprint Sketch, and Ground Espresso. Of those colors, I already own Twisted Citron in the regular pad; I have no desire to add Hickory Smoke or Ground Espresso to my collection in pad form, and Blueprint Sketch is one I'd like to own. So I guess, I may be waiting till next year to buy a mini pad of Blueprint Sketch rather than invest in colors I doubt I'll use.
I will, however, be adding them all to my collection of markers. That's how I tend to use color with stamps...I color stamp images in rather than stamp in color. I really have no need of colored ink pads except for techniques and hence, I'll only invest in colors I like.
So what's the score?
Ranger Distress Inks: 3
We're all tied up. What color in my predictions am I routing for? Hydrangea blue-violet. Let's go purples!
