I must enable…

So I have little-to-no creative juices right now. But I still had to pop in today to give you a heads up on a must-have that you have to move fast on. A few people have emailed asking me about this new product, so here goes…

Ranger just released a new set of limited edition Spring Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac. When I saw the colors, I knew I needed in Peacock Feathers. But I wasn’t sure on the other two colors. Until I played with them…

So Peacock Feathers it the perfect teal color. A little more green than Broken China. A little more blue than Evergreen Bough. To me, it is the color of the Caribbean ocean. Just perfect. (More on this in a moment.)

Then Shaded Lilac. I thought I could pass on this since I am not huge on purple. But I was wrong. It has a lovely blue tint to it. It is like a happy indigo that makes me want to color easter eggs. A fun color.

And finally Squeezed Lemonade. Yes, we all need a happy sunshine yellow and this fits the bill. A great color that will be great for watercoloring.

So, yes, we need these. We all need these…

And for those of you who emailed asking how the Peacock Feathers compares to the other blues and greens in the Distress Ink family, here you go… (fancy inking I did for you here, huh? ha.)

Told you it is perfect. The color difference is a bit more intense in real life.

And if these new colors weren’t fab enough, Ranger also just release reinkers for all of their special edition sets. First, they have reinkers for the Spring set above. I am over the moon thrilled about reinkers for the previous limited edition sets as I love Gathered Twigs from the Autumn set and Evergreen Boughs and Festive Berries from the Winter set. Yay for reinkers!

So there you have it. Love these inks. Oh, and I love to share. So…

Let’s give a set of the Spring Distress Inks away! Just leave a comment here by Wednesday at 11:59pmEST telling me your favorite Distress Ink color for your chance to win. Good luck!
