How do you make something look old or vintage? I've heard this question being asked several times this week in different things I've been doing. There are many different ways to give the look of old to a project including using computer programs, but one of the easiest ways is by the ink you use. Simply by stamping in a muted color such as brown will achieve this. For this tag, I used the Paris Ink in Sepia to give it the vintage look. I, also, inked the edges which is part of a vintage look, too. Using paper that contains browns, golds and muted yellows is another good way. Here I stamped directly onto the sheet of Glitz patterned paper. This is a simple starting point to add the vintage look and you can continue that look just by the embellishments that you add to your projects. For some great vintage embellishments be sure to go and check out the Altered Pages store. They have a great selection of things to choose from to give you the look you are wanting.
