Distressing..

England's performance definitely....and Federer nearly went out of Wimbledon on day one....and my daughter is distressed as there is no Glee on tonight but that's not what this post is about.

With apologies to shop owners and Mr Holtz, but does anyone else have trouble with the blending tool. I know it works well but it's a tad expensive so I'd rather not buy 20 or so to go with my distress ink pads. Changing the foam annoys me - either the velcro comes off the block or the blue felt pulls off the foam. Very irritating.....or is it just me?? I'm sure it's not.

Anyway to rectify the situation a 2m length of wood was purchased and my husband spent a 'happy' hour cutting it into 20 blocks! I superglued cut n dry foam to each block then labelled them with dymo tape.


The good news is there is still about 1m of wood left so that means I can buy some more colours!! Now which ones do I need next?

Hope to be back later in the week - I'm working on something for the Sunday Stamper Challenge with the theme Metal Guru. Check out Hels blog for all the details.

  2. You are brilliant! It reminds me of when I used alcohol ink I used wood with Velcro to stick the felt on. I do have an applicator but I tend to use the cut 'n dry sponges without the applicator, ha ha. I have my favorite colors I keep. I'm so happy that I am meeting some great artists along the way with the blog hop! Thank you so much for your sweet comment.

  3. Great idea. I have stapled my velcro down so it wont come off when I change pads.
