Color on the Edge

By Rebecca Keppel

Sometimes I like to add some color to the edge of my layout. In the past, I used Cat’s Eye Chalk Edgers to do this, but my current way of adding color to the edge is so fun and creates a nice blended effect.

I use Tim Holtz Distress Inks and his Mini Ink Blending tool. I lay a piece of scratch paper or a craft mat underneath my project and move in a circular motion from the scratch paper towards the edge of my project.

You can see when I move my patterned paper that I really do lay a lot of ink down on the scratch paper as I am moving towards my patterned paper.rk sc october-17I think this results in a nice blended look.

I really like the way the orange ink coordinated with the orange in my photo!
