To start inking the edges of your project, you'll need a project and at least one Colorbox Chalk Cat's Eye. Here I used Chestnut Roan, which is a great versatile color for any project, and Creamy Brown, a softer, more shabby chic feeling color of ink.
To apply the ink to the edge of a project, swipe the Cat's Eye directly onto the paper or project.
Holding the Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye perpendicular to the paper will result in less ink being applied to the paper.
The ink is dark only along the very edge of the page when inking with the Cat's Eye held perpendicular to the project.
Holding the Creamy Brown Cat's Eye parallel to the paper while swiping it will result in more ink being applied. The more ink is applied, the more distressed, warm, and vintage the project will look. Applying a lighter color in this way will also extend the ink into the page or project more, giving it a much warmer, organic feel.
After the edge of this page was inked using the Creamy Brown Cat's Eye, it has a soft, subtle feel.
The result is striking!
