Making scrapbooking paper look older

Sandi_WNovember 3, 2008

I bought some pink and white stripe scrapbooking paper for projects for my bedroom, but my bedroom has a slightly off white color and the white is too bright. What can I use to knock the brightness of the white down without changing the pink too much?

Thank you, Sandi

uuuuuummmmm - take a piece of it and try spraying it with a weak solution of tea or wipe it on and then off to get the color you want...

Hi! Maybe try a small piece in a low oven,maybe 175-250, keep checking to see how it's coming along. That might make the pink dull somewhat,pre-heat the oven ,and take notes :D And good luck! or you could set it in the sunlight.

Thank you kudzukween. I didn't think about trying an oven, but that's an idea.
