I just got this today and LOVE it! It is now my fave tool! I've been playing with it on everything..cardstock, patterned paper, chipboard, cards, epoxy pieces, alphabet stickers, ghost shapes, photos, painted chipboard, just anything I could think of. It works. You can go lightly or hard. It's totally in your control and easy to use. It's comfy to hold, thick enough to grasp on to, yet thin enough that it's not awkward. This is a MUST HAVE distressed looks or edgy looks! Everyone should own this.
