I usually ink my pages. My favourite ink to use is Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. You can ink your pages by directly rubbing the pad against the paper, or, you can use a tool for a softer look. The tool I prefer is Tim Holtz Blending Tool. It's intended for Alcohol Inks, but you can buy foam pieces that allow you to ink with it. The wooden block has velcro on it, so I have a rectangle of foam in all my ink colours. It's really easy to switch out. You have a lot of control and it creates a softer, blended look. This tool is available at the store and is quite affordable. The tool retails for $7.99 and the foam pieces are another $7.99. Really reasonable for something you can use again and again. Stop by the store to check out my layout on display in the Christmas section or to pick up the Tim Holtz tool and some ink!
