In 2012 Ranger retired a select palette of DISTRESS PAINT colors to make room for new distress products. With the continued success of all things distress, Ranger is releasing the first ever "BACK FROM THE VAULT" collection! Ranger has manufactured a limited production run of 20 retired distress paint colors giving makers the opportunity to stock up on your favorite distress paint colors before they go back in the vault.

Each fragile petal carries a story, etched in the creases and folds that mark its journey. Memories of vibrant gardens, where marigolds danced in the breeze, flood the senses. Their vivid orange and golden hues radiated hope and joy, casting a spell of enchantment upon all who beheld them.
Now, in their dried state, these marigolds evoke a bittersweet melancholy, reminding us of fleeting beauty and the transient nature of life.

Those who know me well know that I jumped for joy when this color came back from the vault! YEAH! I could paint my walls with it, bathe in it, and even spread it on my bread - that's how much I love it.
Even as a child, I loved collecting small twigs and other treasures during walks. "GATHERED TWIGS" brings back all those memories, reminding me that you're never too old for such simple pleasures.
This color feels like sitting in lush green fields and meadows where clovers grow abundantly. It's like finding a four-leaf clover in unexpected places. It evokes feelings of optimism and positive energy and the belief of finding one's own lucky path or seizing opportunities in life.

I can't comprehend how one can develop such a shade. Pumice stone is the warmest gray I have ever seen. It reminds me of porous lava rocks. This color makes every project unique! And, in fact, you can even learn from it. Did you know that the sulphur-crested cockatoo is known to inhabit volcanic regions? It adapts to various habitats, including volcanic landscapes with open forests and woodlands. Interesting, isn't it? But why on earth does its plumage match the color "pumice stone" so well?
I absolutely love ripe persimmons! They give me the feeling of being on vacation every time. And that's exactly how it feels when I use the color in my projects. Loooove, love, love!

Hold on tight! Don't be surprised if you find your journal pages soaring through the clouds or your cards performing acrobatic stunts in the sky. Remember to anchor down your paper crafts or be prepared for an unexpected airborne adventure. Happy crafting, and may the winds of inspiration carry you to artistic wonders!
The tattered rose tells a story of love and loss, of fragility and resilience. Its once-vibrant petals, now faded and torn, hold a whispered echo of past enchantment. Each delicate fold and crease carries the imprints of a thousand caresses, a testament to the emotions it once stirred.
This color evokes childhood memories. Many times have I strolled along the beach next to the camp site in Italy, searching for little, special treasures. This blue carries the essence of sun, summer, and freedom!
This is a very special one!
Whenever I hold this color in my hand, it reminds me of my sweet friend Hanni @honey_loves_paper. Not only does the color name "wild honey" evoke memories of her, but she is just like this color. Wild, vibrant, with a generous dose of sunshine in her heart, and incredibly sweet.
