...actually I don't like tea but this post isn't about the stuff you drink anyhow! I was in desperate need of some inspiration to create some gift cards/holders/somethings - but I needed ten so they had to be quick and simple - enter Tea Bag template. Gingersnaps Creations are all about Hot Beverages this month and their Random Redhead Challenge is to use a Teabag template. Now I was a little confused by this initially - surely a tea bag is just square/round? But no - this challenge refers to the little packet tea bags and Gingersnaps have kindly provided a template and some great examples to get going with.
I wanted to use Distress inks as I love the colours but had used fairly cheap card (running out of the good stuff) which doesn't take D.I.s very well but is sturdy enough for this kind of project. So I brayered the ink on which gave a good coverage and I was able to get some two tone effects. I then used my Hero Arts Cling Polka Dots stamp on most of them - the other stamps used are from Artistic Stamper, Hero Arts, Penny Black and a couple of random clear stamps I've lost the details for.
I had a couple of boys to make for and also one girl who doesn't really do girly and these turned out to be my favourates.
