Default DTP

Ok I see a lot of DTP in the galleries and I have tried that many times and hate the way it turns out.. what is the way to get it to look good instead of just looking like I dropped the ink pad on the paper?

Any suggestions?

You can gently use the inkpad on the paper, usually getting some streaks, or use a sponge to transfer the ink for a softer look-depends on the look you want. Most times it is used for edging.

I like the little make up wedge sponges (available at drugstores). They give me more control. Hope that helps!
