I haven't tried this, and I forgot if you are wanting the solution to be acid free.I don't do a lot of scrapbooking, but I do some art crafts.Here are a couple ideas, without the expense of buying ink, you could brew some strong tea, and let it evaporate, so that it is not as thin as you would drink, or you could do the same thing with coffee, people use tea to dye items that they want to look antique.There are all kinds of inks that give that older look.Hope you find what works for you.Kersti
