    OK – I am too cheap to buy Timmy Holtz blending tools, but not too cheap to buy 800 pieces of Dusty Attic and 672 yards of Prima Lace. Clearly I have a warped sense of where to save money.

    BUTTTTTT, Whenever I buy brads and embellies that have foam, I save the foam and use that as my blending tool for the Timmy inks, stains, mixatives, etc. The foam works well for me because I can dab the coer of the foam and get inside masks pretty well if I want to blend (if I am not spritzing or misting).

    That blending tool does not provide me with as much control as I like. And i guess I feel a real need to micro-manage my LO's lest they go off on their own and get all funky on me behind my back.

    Or perhaps the deep-rooted problem I have is throwing anything out and the real reason why I am using the foam as a blending tool?????

      I barely use his blending tool too. I'm quick to grab a makeup sponge to use it. since I don't wear makeup a bag of sponges last me a long time

        I like the tip edge it has for more detailing possibilities

          Oh I love my Timmy blending tools, I have a BUNCH!! I tried makeup sponges and they wore out too quickly and fell apart – could be that I bought really cheap ones at Wally world though!!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

            I don't have as much control with the makeup sponges…too dense or something anyway, the timmy tools aren't THAT expensive…like you say….just trade a couple of da one month for the blending tool or I think that Lisa (starsailor) has made them…if I remember she has them somewhere on one of the forums….maybe she can post again…

            You can buy just one tool and chage out the foam. I keep my foans in little plastic bags with the name written on it .That way you only need one tool!
