I got the gunmetal stickles to aid in making Masculine layouts. So far I have been well pleased with it and love the effect I ended up with on my latest layout "Welcome To Whereever You Are" The only thing I see that could be better is a lttle bit bigger hole. It does ocasionally get clogged but I really do love this for the color and bling. Stickles is a must have in every scrappers supplies list!!!!!
