I want to thank Simon Says Stamp! for that Distress Ink - I won a giveaway they had on Facebook a few weeks back - YAY! What a generous company! The final inking of the edges is in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also spritzed the entire thing with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, this close-up kinda sorta shows you the shimmer it has IRL:
