It’s Tuesday so it’s time for another installment of Tool Time and this week we’ll be talking about the blender pen! 

Blender pens are dual-tipped, filled with a specialized solution to blend ink easily and come in a pack of three.  It’s best to use them with Watercolor Paper or Shimmery White Cardstock. Regular Whisper White paper will pill.

I like using the blender pens with our Watercolor Pencils.  After coloring an image with the pencils, going over it with a blender pen evens out the color.  It really does make a difference! The tip cleans off easily with several strokes on scrap paper (I do it on my grid paper).  Keep doing this until the ink is no longer coming off onto the grid paper.

You’ll find that sometimes you don’t want to use everything included on a stamp.  For instance, on the stamp below, it says, “You make me smile.”  If I’m using this as a sentiment on the front of my card, I prefer that the period not be there.

After stamping the sentiment in Memento Ink, just take your blender pen and “erase” the period away (see the after below).  All the ink is transferred to the blender pen and no longer on your stamp! Sometimes it’s necessary to huff on the ink before stamping to reactivate the ink in case it started to dry out while you were “erasing.”

Once you add a blender pen to your stash of crafting supplies, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
