  1. Loving all the new colors and hope Tim is inventing a holder to put all these colors in. The brown is soooooo rich like chocolate. Yummy!!

  2. Oohhh, reminds me of the mocha coffee I had a couple of weeks ago at Starbucks!! A Delicious mix of coffee and chocolate!! YUMMY!!

  3. Brown is my favorite color (followed by yellow) and this such a luscious vibrant one! Thanks.

  4. This new brown is such a deep, rich color. I’m sure it will easily fit in with the rest of my Distress products. Luscious new color!

  5. This is a ‘must’ color …. love the vintage/grunge look. Heard you had quite the crowd at Stampaway Friday night.

  6. So not my colour! I love the much brighter colours and don’t need any more brown ink, not even Distress brown ink! Thanks for the chance. am a subscriber Karen

  7. I love Walnut Stain but think I will love this one even more. I stamp in brown a lot and this will be great! Tim’s video is worth watching to see what colors he pairs with the Ground Espresso.

  8. I love the distress colors… and the names for them! Ground Expresso is no exception. Tim Holtz is a master of his craft.

  9. Ground Expresso is an amazing go to color for me. I love the depth it adds to my papercrafting and mixed media projects.

  10. I love this new brown! It’s such a dark, rich brown that will go so well with almost everything! I used to have a silky dress in just that color and I loved the way it made me feel! :-)

  11. Well I adore the color brown, so having another brown to add to the distress color family makes me very happy!

  12. Yes, this is a must have color. My first colors of distress inks were the browns. I love them all, and with fall and of course Halloween coming up, these will be wonderful. Love them, love the espresso.
