the image of the pumpkin panel has some that was color dusted with distress inks (barely barely antique linen) along the edges. the inside liner piece I drug a cats eye sized color box chalk ink ( creamy brown ) along its edges ( that is my go to for pale brown)
if you use a sponge it looks like sponging. with a brush you get steaks so you can layer two colors easy enough
I've used the sponges that SU sales cut into quarters and I've used this Tim Holtz® Adirondack® Alcohol Ink Applicator | Ranger Ink and Innovative Craft Products
for blending. Not long ago I bought these foam pads Inkssentials
to try because that seems to be what a lot of people use for the distress ink blending. Haven't tried the foam pads yet though.
Jennifer McGuire uses the distress inks a lot. Here is part one of her distress ink series on youtube http://youtu.be/XjXNnOTAYFA
and here is her youtube link http://www.youtube.com/user/jennifer...ure=CAQQwRs%3D
. You can look through and find the ones that show her using the distress inks.
