SIMON SAYS STAMP INTENSE BLACK INK:
Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink was designed to be used with watercolors and all types of markers including Copic, Zig, Tombo, Spectrum Noir, plus color pencils and more. It’s also a great choice as your everyday stamping ink.
It’s quick-drying, smudge-free, and a permanent ink that is an intense black.
Tip: Barely Beige and Barely Blue are made with the same formula as our Intense Black ink so you can use them with all your favorite coloring mediums. The colors were designed for No-Line coloring. Use Barely Beige for warm tone coloring and Barely Blue for cool tones.
TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS EMBOSSING DABBER:
This handy dabber delivers embossing ink where ever you’d like it. With a quick swipe, you’re off to embossing with your favorite powders. It is clear embossing ink with a light, pleasant cinnamon scent in a bottle with a cloth covering.
Inking through a stencil is quick and easy! You can also draw your own shapes to emboss!
Tip: If you have smaller areas to cover or would like to emboss your handwriting, give the Distress Embossing Pens a try!
TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS EMBOSSING GLAZES
These embossing powders are like no other. They are translucent. They will tint anything you emboss with them. You can use them over stamped and printed items and they will actually accentuate the black print. There are presently 12 colors to chose from.
Tip: A set of 12 glaze jars fit perfectly into a Distress Crayon Tin for easy storage.
If you’re in need of creating your own fabric masks, Simon Says Stamp carries this lycra, 5/32 inch round elastic. It is soft and pliable and does not pinch or pull the hair or skin and it is made in the U.S.A. This rounded elastic is very comfortable behind the ears. Each spool is approximately 100 feet in length.
