Recycle Wink of Stella Pen
Tip of the Day

 Hello Friends 
   I hope I'm not to late with this great tip or if I am that is okay, now you will have more reason to get more Wink of Stella and use it as fast has you can so you can make your own coloring tool. Last week I empty 2 Wink of Stella and I toss then in the trash well not for long and grab them from the trash. I love when I get a great idea and it work. So here the scoop 
 Before you do your color pen out of the Wink of Stella I would suggest that when you feel the pen/tube is empty add a few drop of water of even better alcohol and it will get more shimmer out of that little tube then when you see you don't get anymore shimmer here how I recycle them to make some alcohol pen I add between 10 to 15 drop of re inker, filed the tube with alcohol I use the 70%. Why such a big different in the drop count of re inker well all depend how dark you want your color. Ex: the Old Olive I use 10 drop to get a nice shade green and the Wisteria Wonder I added 15 drop. In the picture of the card that I color with my new recycle pen the Wisteria look kinda of silver but in real like it is Wisteria :) I have the video on my You Tube channel or on my blog post today. I am so excited about this recycle tip and now I can't wait to empty more and more wink of Stella to make different color pen. I am sure after many refiled we will not have any shimmer but it will be great to color. Many already ask me why alcohol and not water well alcohol dry super fast and water spread more on your card stock and it is harder to control so alcohol is the best. 
Now in the video you will see from start to finish how I did this card and how I recycle the Wink of Stella. Very important is to use the Memento ink with alcohol so the in will not smear and the best card stock to use the recycle pen is the heavy white card stock or the shimmer card stock. 
 I will list all supplies at the bottom except the alcohol 
-Whisper white  8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ fold in half card base 
-Heavy Whisper White card stock 3½ x 4¾ 
-Wisteria Wonder 5 x 3¾
 Happy Recycle and have a lovely day!

  1. This is a great idea!! I never would have thought of that. Thank you for sharing.

  2. WoW! You are just so clever!
    Thanks for letting us know how to squeeze as much as possible out of the wink of stella and then how to "reuse the brush instead of just tossing it.

    The card is beautiful!

  3. A super tip, thank you.
    Now I have to dig up my old wink of Stella out of the wastepaperbasket, I threw it away 2 days ago!

  4. My Wink of Stella pen is almost finished. I cannot wait to try this. Thanks for saving me a little money. I'll have more to spend on dies, now. lol Love your videos.

  5. Great idea & upcycle! What about adding a tiny bit of Perfect Pearl to the water or alcohol to replenish the shimmer?
