    This is a novice question... but how do you ink the edges of your pics and paper? With a stamp or pen? Is there a right way to do it? What works best for you?

    I use an ink pad on the paper. I've never inked photos.

    Haven't tried my photos. with paper I hold the paper horizontal and rub the ink pad on the edges. I'll sometimes use a pen if it's in the color I want or want it darker in a spot.

    There's no right or wrong way; the method you use just depends on the look you want and personal preference.

    You can use the ink pad directly to your paper/photos. If you want a softer look, you can use a slightly damp (not wet!) sponge or q-tip (again, depending on the look you're going for) and apply the ink that way.

    I've also used chalk for my paper edges, using q-tips or some other chalk applicator. The possibilities are endless.

    Take some scrap paper and a photo that you would throw away anyway and practice various techniques and inks. (Don't forget to make notes for yourself as to which technique/ink does what!) This way, you can see which affect you want.
