great tutorial Calv

Just to say the foam pads wash really well and every now and then I wash them and start again

Top Tip I had was store each pad under the ink pad in the indent with velcro - not tried this but sounds a good idea

Make up sponges are a different texture Adele. I have them and use them for blending, but I have found they do not last as long as the blending squares or the cut n dry, they split and can crumble after time. No idea if there is a right or wrong but I usually blend first, then add stamped image over. I have also had a go like Carolyn with the already stamped images. I remember Jennie saying on a day workshop I attended sometime back that the blender sponges could be washed from time to time. I have lost my blending tool :roll: So I have improvised using an old office type stamping block with handle - the block is metal rather than wood - I attatched some chipboard then velcro - a little more bulky than I would like but it cost me nothing so cannot complain.

Thank you, I'll buy some of the ranger foam pads, can't stretch to the lovely little blender tools! :-?

Probably completely wrong thing to do but I use the sort of sponge you put in cushions! I had loads in the garage which I used to make mattresses for dolls cribs etc. and I cut that up and use it. It works fine for me! I have the blending tool ( but the velcro bit keeps coming off ) and the pads but find the sponge is quicker and easier!

Happy to send you some to try Adele if you like.
