Teaching an old tool new tricks.

As you have probably noticed, through my prior postings, I am really into the Tim Holtz Distress inks and products right now. And even though I fear that I might be boring you all to death, I just had to mention these products again in respects to a new use for an old tool.

Now, if you are familiar with Tim Holtz & Ranger products you know that he uses a terrific tool for blending the distress inks, Inkssentials™ Ink Blending Tool & Foam. This tool is priced pretty reasonably at around $5.00 each. I have purchased one here and there to build up my supply but realized that I didn’t have much space to keep a tool for each color. Looking for an alternative, I tried out my ColorBox Stylus to see how it would work and was pretty pleased with the results. The tips do a nice job blending the inks and are easy to clean off and reuse. The tool is small, handy, and stores easily. This is a big deal when you have limited space in your craft room!

Now, if I had more space I would definitely go with the Inkssentials Blending tool however, that is not the case. So, I am super excited to have found an almost equivalent tool that has a much smaller footprint. Plus, I have found another use for an existing tool. That is a good deal!  Happy Stamping!  L.
