I really like the Tim Holtz blending pads and the pads are reasonable but buying multiple tools just isn’t cost effective and well I would rather use that money on other Tim Holtz goodies 😉

So I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a dowel rod that was 1′ diameter and 36′ long ($3.59)

My awesome husband cut it at 3′ pieces which gave me 12 (you could cut them smaller or larger depending on the comfort fit)

I had some Velcro which to each side

I now have 12 Blending tools with 24 blending pads for all my ink pads

As I use the pads I will write the color on each end, so I don’t get them mixed up.

 

I’m still working on a way of storing these, at the moment I emptied one of my containers I kept for jewelery supplies, this works for the time bing and I even have enough room to add my mini distress pads.

Have a good day and I hope I save someone some money 🙂

I didn’t get to do the challenge last week, my mom has been the hospital going on two weeks and all the running back and forth last week I didn’t get to do any art, and boy was I getting itchy. I was working on this for the 3 days now, but I finally finished it and I REALLY like how it turned out.

The flowers are all colored using my gelli plate and all three of this weeks colors mixed and individual. Tim Holtz tattered floral die cut and some my three sizes of daisy punches. I also used Tim’s new hexagon die cut and some of his rub-ons.

Julie Nuttings Paper Doll Stamp ‘Kate’, the cute little cat  (a gift from a friend) is from Inka-dinka-doo, the splash of light blue in the back ground is from the Crafters Workshop grid background a new toy and destined to be a new favorite of mind.

This weeks challenge was  true challenge for me as it was way out of my color comfort zone. But I DID IT!!!
