Faux Aged Paper Challenge

A Technique Junkie turbo team member is hostessing Challenge Wednesday at the Design Junkies blog.  This week's challenge was to use the Faux Aged Paper technique from a 2004 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. The technique is accomplished by covering your card stock with lemon juice (I used lime juice; I think anything with a citric acid will accomplish the effect) and heating with your heat gun. The more heat you apply, the more concentrated and deeper the aging will be (this technique reminds me of a similar technique using Sweetened Condensed Milk). The card I created with this technique is shown below.  Stamps were from the Antique Autos set by Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!
