Hi ladies . . .

I've been wanting to try this for awhile now so I thought I'd create a swap and perhaps inspire some of you to try it, too!

For this swap you'll be creating an ATC using altered, used tea bags.
A how-to and some inspiration can be found:


You may use the altered tea bag as the focal point of your design, use it as a background on which to build, or alter the tea bags in such a way that they will comprise the entire ATC.

The MM artist in the blog post doesn't mention rubber stamping on the prepared tea bags, but that might be good for those of us who don't draw well (me). She is also mounting her bags onto fabric; that's not required for this swap--just mount them onto your sturdy backing.

Hope you'll join me in trying something new!
