Is it just me or do many of you ink all of your edges. I ink my mats, cardstock, stickers, journaling cards, tags, nearly everything before I lay it down. What about you? And why or why not?

I really intend to ink but I usually end up forgetting. Crazy silly I know. But even with the ink and applicator in plain sight, I still forget.

I don't ink edges much when I scrapbook, but I do when I make cards.

I ink a lot. Colorbox frost white or chestnut roan chalk ink are my two favorites.
I am a very simple and flat scrapper. I like the dimension that a little inking gives a page or a card.

I like more of a cleaner look, but I actually end up inking quite often. I know.....contradictory!

I hardly ever do. It looks nice, but I just don't remember to do it very often.

I ink everything. The page just doenst look complete to me without ink. Its like the paper is naked without it,

I ink everything too. I think it adds the dimension that I sometimes find is missing. However my last couple of layouts have been completely different for me-I've gone with a clean white background (something I never do) and I found that I didn't ink as much! I did still ink the edges of some of the elements on the page, but not nearly as much as I usually do-and I actually like the look!

I used to ink absolutely everything with Chestnut Roan or Frost White. Now I don't ink as much, though I recently did a little girl album and inked everything with bright pinks, greens and orange. That was a first for me...inking with brights made the album extra 'happy'. ha ha

I haven't inked anything in years! I just prefer the look without the ink. I like to score the edges of my paper with a piece of sandpaper or a Tim Holtz or Making Memories edge distresser tool.

I used to ink a lot more than I do now, at the moment I'm probably 50/50 on inking or not. I also like to use sewing and paint, or depending on the cardstock, I'll sand the edges and/or use a distress tool.

Nothing I mean nothing goes down on a page or card till it's inked. I have all of Tim H's distressing inks and use them on every thing I do.
What are you looking at?
|Posted: 3/18/2013 9:04:47 AM|
I used to ink the edges of everything, but I rarely do now. I have discovered that my style is clean, simple and crisp. I still like the look on others' pages, though!

I do most of the time. It makes everything cohesive.

|Posted: 3/18/2013 9:22:04 AM|I ink EVERYTHING. Even use a marker to get in all the nooks and corners on alphas. Of course I then need to use more glue because if there was any there it is mostly gone by the time I am through inking the edges. Finger oils

I ink close to always but keep it restricted to the solid and patterned paper. My daughter and I call it "the professional touch" and I have a few favorite colors that I use most of the time. It just looks so much better!

I DO ink most things because I dislike seeing the white edge of cut pp cardstock in my layouts. I ink to cover that edge that often shows, and I tend to use a color that blends in with the color of the pp.

I ink almost everything. For me, it makes things look more "finished".

I generally ink. It's good for definition, & it can also be used to tie elements together if there's a slight variation in the shades of the colors.
I've been a dilettante, but I'm thinking of dabbling in something else.
|Posted: 3/18/2013 1:44:31 PM|Not as much as I used to! Nowadays, I seem to just distress them and leave them....or run some paint around the page Now that I've said that, though, I'll probably ink everything on the next page I make
