umm, how to…errr how I did anyway
Using a sheet of white copy paper I applied a very watery brown wash with a sponge brush. It gave the paper a sort of streaked effect. I then did the same thing with a super pale pink.
I used a white china marker to trace a stencil.
Then followed that with a green wash.
And ended up with this for Dede’s ongoing - background paper swap’age. One from Set No 7 on Flickr.
