Vintage Scroll Card

This was pending for so long i finally finished it, this scroll card is actually a part of my wedding mini which i promise i will upload soon, as its still a work in progress.
I took a simple plain white handmade paper and cut it into a rectangular shape and adhered the two craft sticks(they are wooden) on each ends. I then painted a border using gold acrylic paint . Then i diluted some coffee in a little water and using a thick paint brush slathered on liberally over the paper and the thick . I alternated a coat then used a blow drier to dry and then repeated till i was happy wid the look , To get the stained effect i blotched coffee randomly on the surface and blew dry and then went all over to get it a stained effect. Also, coat the back 2 layers is enough for the rear.

I burnt the edges to make it even more grungy. If u want i wil do the video for it. I then used a mask and spray painted the image on the top using gold acrylic spray paint. At the bottom i added some sealing wax and used an old coin to get an imprint. I added the tassels to the top stick and a nice cord for tying the scroll together.

P.S.- i used a lotta layers of coffee so the paper when rolled sorta cracked at places adding to the effect.
