Shades of distress ink to buy in starting

Hello crafty souls!!!

Hope you are experimenting new things every day. Distress ink is the important tool that every crafter use. But those who are new and want to buy the inks for them, they must be having a big wisdom in their mind... WHICH COLORS TO BUY IN STARTING? When I started I really had no clue where to start... 😎😎

Then I did some research and came up with the decision to buy 10 inks for me. I started with vintage photo, walnut stain, faded jeans, worn lipstick, mustard seed, peacock feather, picked raspberry, squeezed lemon, dusty concord and festive berries.

It is very important that you should know your requirements before choosing the colors:
*If you want to give your project vintage and antique look you should go for walnut stain and vintage photo.

*If you want to highlight the edges you can choose the medium shade of that particular shade.

*If you want to make the background then you should choose those colors which blend which other nicely. I choose one basic color and it's light and dark shade.

Shades of pink, red, purple blends beautifully, shades of blue, green and yellow blends well. Brown shades gives vintage look.

I segregated the shades accordion to their colors below:

Brown:  Vintage photo , Antique linen(l), walnut stain(d)

Black: Black soot

Green:  Shabby China, bundled sage / crushed olive(l), peeled paint (d)

Blue: Broken China, tumbled glass (l), faded jeans/chipped sapphire(d)

Pink: Worn lipstick, spun sugar(l),  Victorian velvet(d)

Yellow: Wild honey/ musturd seed

Orange: Rusty hinge

Purple: Milled lavender/dusty concord

Red: Fired brick/ Aged mahogany (reddish brown)

Grey: Old paper/ weathered wood

** Here (l) stands for light and (d) stands for dark

Bright colours

Blue: Salty ocean, Peacock feather

Pink: Picked raspberry

Green: Mowed lawn

Yellow: Squeezed lemonade

Orange: Ripe persimmon

Red: Festive berries

This is my list... Don't be afraid to experiment and create your own list.
