Brayering with shadow ink/tea staining

Unfortunately, white cardstock can sometimes be too bright a color for the final “look” that you want for a card. If you have an image stamped onto white card and want to darken the background slightly – a nice coffee/tea stained color maybe - mask your image and brayer over the whole piece with a soft beige color. You will have an antiqued effect.
