Today I wanted to share a little something I did.
In South Africa, the kids started school last month again, so we were all in a mad dash to get them all the supplies they needed.
While shopping for my son I had to buy him a white board eraser, and it occurred to me that it would make a fantastic blending tool for distress inks. It’s got the wooden handle for nice grip and a thick durable piece of felt attached to the bottom.
I stored the idea away in the back of my mind and it got lost in the chaos that is my mental filing system.
Yesterday I was in the stationary store to buy a visual diary and I saw the white board eraser. Since they are inexpensive, under R10 for one, I grabbed a few. To use with the start of my collection of distress inkpads.
I only have four minis so far, but I plan on getting more. I like the effects you can create with them.
This is what I did.
I took normal rectangular white labels.
Used the eraser to blend the color onto them.
Stuck the label to the top
And made a text label for the side with the color name on it.
There you have it. A cheap way to have a blending tool for all your favorite inks.
Instead of having to keep changing icky felt on just one tool.
Hope this helps someone out.
