Inking edges

When I do scrapping in the conventional way I like to ink the edges of my back ground paper and other things. Is there a way to do replicate this? If so what do others use? Thanks.

Its what you do to distress or make the edges look old, to give them extra dimension. To do this on normal scrap paper in the physical sense you would get a piece of sponge and use it in an ink pad and then go around the edges of the paper.

What about..if you add a 'material' and resize it to be the mount/background for your photo. Then select it > right click > format > line colour > choose a colour and a point size for the line. Then use the roughen tool for a less uniform/more rustic look. Is that any good?

The grunge brushes are actually designed exactly for this purpose. When using them use a large brush width (say around 200pt). There are a number of different grunge brushes available - some of them look like using ink on a sponge. There are also ones which give crack effects and such.

Thanks,

Sure would be nice to see an example of this process both within and without DS2. Possible?

Besides grunge and other brushes, you can also find inked edge overlays you can use.
