20 Free Original Hi-Res Ink Stained Paper Textures


So i say these are ink, and they do look like ink but there actually food colouring / dye , they give the same effect pretty much , but i wanted to give them a watered down feel with strong pieces of colour in some places and lighter in others.

Dont forget to keep checking Texture Lovers for free textures.

These 20 textures are also at a high resolution to cover most working areas and are ideal to be edited, such as colour adjustmets and cropping, as you can see i have changed the colour in the preview above to green.
