Bought six of these and will definetly buy some more. These wash up very good to be used with another color. The sponge is a little stained when using a darker color but it does not affect anything when usng a lighter ink, (when washed properly)
I used this several different ways. One way was to blend it and another way, I took Big plastic bubble wrap dipped it into ink and applied it to card stock....then with the applicator I dipped it into the same ink and reapplied the ink on the CS.
I've always struggled with how to apply ink and I never knew the solution was out there! This tool applies just the right amount of ink in a soft, blended way. It's easy to use and gave the perfect look I was going for. I cleaned it with soap and water and, while it stained a little, it basically came clean. I love this!
