Angela's Tea Bag Stamping Tutorial!

Hello there!  Today I have a fun project to share using a tea bag and Prickley Pear Rubber stamps and dies!

  Begin by soaking a tea bag in hot water.  I make myself a cup of tea and save the bags!  

Open tea bag and remove tea leaves, allow it to dry completely before stamping.

I drink a wide variety of teas and it's a lot of fun to see the different stains they create.

 Dried Papers

To create this card I did not let the tea bag dry but cleaned off the tea leaves then dripped TH Reinkers directly onto the wet tea bag.

 I used my heat gun to quickly dry the inked bag then I stamped GG0187 Black Capped Chickadees on the tea bag and tore the edges to center the image.  The stained tea bag looks a bit like linen now!

I created the flowers from a second inked tea bag using D012 Beautiful Flowers die.
DD0199 Happy Spring.
