Creating with Ranger Photo Nibs

I have a confession to make. I have never used the Ranger Photo Nibs before. When I saw that they were featured in the February Kit from I Am A Scrapaholic I was intrigued. I was interested in finding out what I could do with them. Here are just a couple of samples you can do using the Ranger Photo Nibs from the February kit from I Am A Scrapaholic.

In this project I used the Ranger Photo Nibs to paint a stamped image. As you can see I used more than one different color in coloring my image. The Nibs were easy to use. I found that I could used a broader brush stroked on larger areas and use the finer point tip to get into those tricky tight corners.

With this layout I colored a part of a black and white photo that I wanted to higlight. For more depth I ended up using two different colors of Ranger distressed ink to give it sort of a 3D effect. Again using the Ranger Photo Nibs was so easy in getting to those small areas and for creating the layered effect on the flowers.
