Ok, I am always trying to save a buck so that I can add to my arsenal of scrap booking goodness. So I have been looking for the Tim Holtz (Ranger) Ink Blending Tool. I have the Alcohol blending felts, but not the foam. But I cant seem to find the packages of the foams. So my dear friend Paulien Vandenbocsh had this wonderful idea to add to her own collection by creating her own. That sparked my creative juices to create the cutest ink blending tools!! With the help of my dear talented husband and my scrappy creative brain, I did it. I went to Home Depot, with a list of what my husband told me to get, came home, handed him the supplies, he went into his work shop and came out with the prototype!!! I was tickled!! I then took it into my scrap room and proceeded to give it it's own personality!! And this is what I came up with...So for about $20.00 (the retail cost of 2 Ranger Ink Blending Tools) I have 20 of them!!! And they will all have different designs!! Sweet!! So go visit Swirlydoos and check out the forums for tips and tricks, because in the near future I will be giving away a few of these cute blending tools!! Here are the before and after photos.
