A Vintage Flair

Anything with a vintage or shabby look truly appeals to me. In this tag there are lots of layers. Not of papers or cardstock, but of stamped images. The best tip for achieving a shabby or worn look is to barely stamp your images in multiple layers. Instead of working to get a clean crisp stamped image try inking up and stamping hap hazzardly, kind of random. Then sponge various tones of color finishing with sponging the edges in the darkest color of your choice. Last step is to splatter ink. I like the Inkworks Art Airgun for a fine splatter effect.
