Distress Ink Color Chart

Following the Distress Ink Chart given on the Ranger website, I made my own version to fit my needs. I made a chart for the original 36 colors and an additional chart for the seasonal inks. The seasonal colors were originally limited addition, but are now a part of the permanent line. Although they are no longer limited addition, I still refer to them as the seasonal colors and like keeping them separate for that reason.

Above are the original 36 colors and below are the seasonal colors. I store both color charts in a clear page protector that hangs in front of me, at my craft desk. I can easily see the colors at any time. I also used these charts to organize and store my blending foam pieces. (Check it out.)

First, I printed the charts on white cardstock and rounded the corners with the 1/2" side of the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Then I swiped my ink pads onto some white cardstock, let them dry, and punched out a 1" square from each color swatch. I used my Xyron Create-A-Sticker to adhere all the color swatches to the chart.

Another option would be to swatch the inks onto Avery's full sheet shipping labels, which already have the adhesive.

The Original chart should fill most of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. If it does not, try turning OFF or ON the "Scale to Fit" printing option or change the scale in which it's printing.
