|Hmmm... I have my doubts about this going through the printer.|
To the computer…
They now have stock photography for everything (really truly), I searched for tea-stained paper and landed on bigstockphoto.com. Refining my search for vintage paper, I settled on an image and paid my $4.99. I am pretty happy with what I came up with – I think it does make my jewelry look more expensive (yes?).
|Oh – the nice edge – that is crayola pip-squeaks “small potatoes” brown. Courtesy of yours truly – there is at least one thing I can do by hand!|
- make the background a layer by double clicking on it in the layers palette and naming it.
- back off the opacity to 50% (my image was too dark). Having cropped it to the desired size,
- create a layer effect of a light inner shadow, by using Inner Glow. Adding noise to your shadow keeps the grainy effect.
