We now have the wonderful Spectrum Noir Graphic pens in stock and at a brilliant price! £19.99 for packs of 12 pens (rrp £24.99) and £10.99 for packs of 6 pens (rrp £12.99).
These alcohol pens blend and layer beautifully. I love colouring and these pens provide a range of colours that make it so easy, and fun, to add shading and tone.
Last week we had a stock of Foam on a Roll from Crafters Companion, and it proved very popular. Which got me thinking about the different options for double-sided foam and why the foam on the roll sold so quickly (we will be getting more in!)
1mm is nice when you don't want too much height, such as decoupage where each layer sits just above the one below to give a 3D effect.
2mm thickness is a good general purpose pad that works well for mounting a topper or sentiment panel.
Then there is the chunkier 3mm pads which we have in larger 12mm x 6mm and 24mm x 12mm. These are perfect for when you want to make more of a statement, perhaps for a frame.
The Foam on a Roll has a thickness of 2mm, width 10mm and a length of 2m, giving a lot of tape for the price. It can be cut into smallish pieces (but don't use your best scissors for that) or it can be left as longer strips giving more support. Perhaps it's the flexibility which makes it appealing.
However, if you are looking for flexibility, then we shouldn't forget silicone gel. Ideal for decoupage and fine detailed die-cuts, for giving a bit of support to the raised wings of butterflies or the petals of flowers and great for securing buttons and bows!
Hope you found that interesting, be back soon.
