Is there a specific technique you girls use for inking the edges of your pictures and embellisments? I've tried it, but it never looks all that great. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I just hold the paper at an angle and wipe it across the ink pad. It's hard to explain through typing.

Okay...that's pretty much what I do to. Hmmm...I guess I was wondering if there was a tool, or a technique with a brush.

Thanks!

You can use a brush or a sponge to do it to. Just dip it into the ink and put on page. But I will say my favorite way of doing it is to run my pages across the ink pad. I love how it looks I do it on a lot of my layouts.

I've been wondering as well! I may have to give it a try.

You can use a brush but I am just too lazy. So I take my stamp pad to my paper edge and just go, go go!

I like using a sponge with mine, especially when I'm using the distressed ink

I just use the ink pad and run it across the edges too.

I will say I'm done with all my regular ink pads though, even for stamping. The kis are getting them for their craft tote, lol. I am in love with the tsukineko brilliance dew drop pads- they hold so much ink & the way they're shape makes it easier to get in corners & small places.
