:star::star: Hit download to enjoy! =D :star::star:


EDIT2:// Added another so there are actually 12 now
EDIT:// Added some more, and a new preview image

One of my favorite ways to add texture to a sketch via Photoshop is overlaying a paper texture with a vintage feel. And as far as I am concerned, there are just not enough free ones out there.

I've got some more in the making so I may just add them to this file when they are done drying.

These were hand-dyed with a mixture of teas. Basically whatever I had in my tea stash that I didn't care for. So a mixture of Rooibos chai, little bit of orange pekoe, a dash of my precious delicious Earl Grey, and a mystery tea bag.

Rules for Usage
These are completely free to use.
You can use them commercially (like commissions, etc), you can use them non-commercially. Any way you see fit, feel free to use them.
Credit is appreciated, but not required. Link back if you are feeling kind C:

The only rule is please do not claim these as your own. 'Cause that is called stealing.

Enjoy my lovelies!! :heart:

Ahhh super late reply, my bad

Glad you found a use for them! I don't require credit for their use (though it is appreciated, it helps to spread them around), so I don't require you to notify me each time. Have fun with them!

These are gorgeous! Thank you for making them available for commercial use. I create small time artwork and sell it online. But trust me. It isn't much, so when someone makes it commercially available for free it is so nice. I am going to make textures soon and do the same. See how good things go around?

Thanks for the comment!
I have searched for resources like this to use in commercial pieces a few times and always came up empty. Hence why I decided to create my own set and spread it for the world to use! =D
