Instead of always using a ink pad to take of that just cut look the edges of your paper. Why not dust of your Promarkers or similar pens and use these to edge your papers.
Using the chisel of your pen, run it along the cut edges of your papers to finish of your projects instead of inking.
I am not say you can do this on all your projects because sometime you need that ink edged /distressed look however, it will work well on alot of them and it is quick. You can also use any colour pen to match your work.
Another way of using your pens is with a ruler to give a thicker line, this is great way to edge your work so it looks like it has been “matting and layered” especially if you do it in Black or a darker colour.
So dust of you pens and give it a go!!! Check out the video to see how easy it is.
