Tea Bags

Over at Simon Says Stamp the challenge is Coffee or Tea. I am a big tea drinker and have been saving tea bags to use in my sewing and mixed media projects. This was the perfect excuse to get them out.

I used various Tim Holtz stamps and Sepia Archival Ink on my background.

I then mixed some Distress Re-inkers with some glazing medium. I wiped them on and off the page several times until I got the color i was looking for. I forgot to take a picture of this process before I stenciled my tree on.

Next I hand used a handmade tree stencil and some brown acrylic paint.

I used some more Tim Holtz stamps on my tea bags.

I also tried image transfers onto the tea bags. I really like how you can still see the background through the tea bags.

So there you have it my little mixed media experiment with tea bags. Thanks so much for stopping by!
