|Happy Anniversary to my two favorite Human BEANS!! : )|
I am playing along with Tic-Tac Toe Challenge today using the diagonal challenge and the color inspiration! I think this is my first time for playing with Stamping Smiles Designs : ) I hope you will consider joining the fun too!!
When it comes to buying papercrafting supplies I am great at keeping my credit card company busy but I have to say I am usually really slow at getting on board with purchasing the newest products. Wink of Stella is one of these products. Not new by any means but I purchased my first tube at Michael's just two days ago. I really was not sure what it was - except it applied glitter to your project. Got glitter? - I'm in!!
|See how the ink has gotten up on to the black part of the pen and escaped so you can see glitter on the black nib holding the brush? Is this normal?|
Anyway after it was closed back up I squeezed on the pen base where it says "PUSH" and nothing really happened. Again I was not altogether sure what to expect. Finally I kept squeezing it and noticed a big glob of silver glitter paint ooozing down toward the brush and actually coming out of the top threatening a big glob to fall.
Once I grabbed the ink blog on a tissue I started painting this delicate little amount of micro fine glitter to a flower on one of my cards and fell completely IN LOVE with the beautiful shimmer it left!
SO! my question!? Did I happen to do this right? or is my pen defective? Is the ink/paint supposed to be able to escape and glob out? Is that little black ring supposed to stay in tact?
LauraJane of After Hours Ink and Flowers blog said she struggles with it globbing out too - did we both get a defective pen??
Thank you so much for your help!! I appreciate hearing your comments and suggestions.
Thank yu for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
