I've got a highly useful set of stained paper textures for you guys today. These were made by using a combination of watercolors and food coloring to stain the paper. I then pressed some of them onto a plate of dried paint to give them a more grungy, block-print feel. I've seen a lot of people using these types of textures lately in digital illustration. Using the textures as an overlay in photoshop helps provide a feeling of handmade artwork. I hope you guys find them useful!
Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
