I've been printing up my pricing tags on white card stock and I realized it would look better if the paper was at least 50 years old or at least look that old.
The tools needed are;
- Instant coffee
- Foam brush
- 2 cups of boiling water
- White card stock
I started brushing the rich instant coffee on to the paper. I carefully stroked the coffee onto the paper making sure that the stroke marks showed up on the paper. After I was happy that the paper had enough coffee I then let the sheets dry in the oven at a 200 degree temperature for about 1 minute.
Then after inspecting the dried paper I decided whether to repeat the process again to get a darker stained look. 2 applications of coffee was brushed on each piece of card stock.
Tomorrow I'll print my some images from the Graphic Fairy onto the vintage looking paper.
Update: you can see the tags I created with this paper HERE
