Useless someone has some tips for me.
You might be able to achieve a similar result by inking a sponge (or if you use the blending pads by Ranger often used with their Distress Inks) and "feathering" ink onto the edges of the paper. Different applicators (make-up wedges, sea sponges, etc.) will probably have somewhat different effects so experiment to find one you like.
