I feel like this post's headline should read:
Q-Tip Stamping Takes Stampers By Storm!
I've literally been flooded with requests to share more about coloring with Q-tips, to create a video and where I've purchased them (which is actually a really good question). I also have some international followers that don't know what Q-tips are (never even occurred to me). So here's a picture:
Here's the details:
I purchased these at least 3-4 years ago at a local dollar store. They came in the real cool curvy container you see in the picture. (Partly why I bought them. You do it too!). They called it a "Pastels Cosmetic Set". In each section were the following: 100 Cosmetic Buds (aka Q-tips), 10 Facial Pads, 10 Cotton Balls. So I guess these were designed more for applying cosmetics, then for ear cleaning.
As it turns out - I really like them for coloring. Actually better than the Q-tip brand which is softer and probably wouldn't hold up well. These particular ones are quite "stiff and wrapped tight". I also like that they have two types of ends. I used the round end for larger areas and the pointed end for smaller details. I just rub them on an ink pad and color away!
I think that should clear everything up!
Thank you for your overflowing & overwhelming comments and reaction to my Control Freaks Blog post. I do read every single one of them (I saw there were a couple of awards sprinkled in there too. I'll get to them soon.) I SO appreciate your support. You know...when you first start blogging, you wonder. Is anyone even reading this? Well - over two years later...I guess you are! Thank You!
On another note: The Abyss! (aka: Stamping Studio)
I'm thrilled to know that I'm not the only one who suffers from a messy Stamping Studio! I want to thank the people who took the time to share their studio/craft room stories with me. I loved reading them and you brightened my day!
