Hi!
I would love to have a handled ink applicator for each Tim Holtz, Stampin' Up, and Chalk ink pad I own, but I have neither the money nor the space for this.

Yesterday, I bought a piece of wood molding that is 1/2" thick, I will be having it cut into pieces just big enough for the foam pads (I bought them on coupon) and will mount them to the blocks. I am just going I will either glue or staple or velcro, which ever works. Then I will have blending pads for the colors. I will write the names of the ink pad on the block with a sharpie. I'm not going to seal the wood either, it's a tool not a decoration.

I like the idea of sponge daubers and will give that a try too.

Thanks for the great ideas.



As for the blending versus sponging, I don't know that the subtle differences are that noticeable to non-crafters. I do know that the backgrounds from sponging/blending make amazing cards and pages.
