Make Vintage Paper - affordable trick !

Here is a Very simple trick to give ur paper an "OLD/ VINTAGE" look...
The answer is in ur TEA ! 
Yes ! its simple actually .... 

1. Add "Loose tea" or dip "Tea bags" into hot water and wait till you get your color, let it cool.
2. Now Use a Brush to spread the tea water over your paper
The Sketch in the picture is made with waterproof black ink pen, hence using Tea didn't spoil the piece. 

3. let it dry and ur done! 

TIP : another effect can be done by dipping the whole paper into a vessel full of tea. 

Try n let me know how it went !! 
Get creative ! :)
