Vintage Look Tutorial from Tina Teasdale

Hello everyone and welcome to The Dragons Den.

Grab a cuppa, pull up a comfy chair and have a browse..

Today we want to share a tutorial made by our DT member Tina Teasdale.
Do pop over on her blog to see more of her fantastic work.

This tutorial is all about the vintage look.
Hope you enjoy.

What you need to begin:
Pot on right is Tea , Pot on left is coffee, white paper ( I used A4 paper torn in half and half again ) washing up sponge. Make a cup of tea, a cup of coffee and leave to go cold completely.

 I've screwed up two of each of the different sizes of paper and put them in the pots for a few seconds until they have been completely covered, take them out and gently open them and leave to dry. The drying process can be speeded up with a hairdryer or heat gun.

 Papers on the left have been dipped in coffee & on the right in tea.

Here is a piece of paper quickly dipped in tea and some rough torn shapes dipped in coffee and left to dry.

 Here I sponged the edges of a shaped card blank with coffee.

Here is the finished card. I used a velum sentiment dipped in coffee and blasted with my heat gun. I crumpled up some of the torn shapes to make flowers & added twine to the left side.
(tutorial to follow on the flowers)

 This pic is a little bit dark but shows the crumpled effect of the paper.

And that is it. A fantastic project from Tina. Thank you very much Tina.
