Stamped Tea bags

Morning I am back with my second post today which is my first DT post for Simply Create Too and the challenge is No Patterned Paper.I have finally made some stamped teabags after having dried the first lot to have hubby throw them away!!!These are also the right size for Artist Trading Coins so double whammy!!!
I first added some gesso then a couple od Decoart sprays and all the stamps are craft mag freebies.I got the idea and inspiration from Alison.

You constanly introduce me to new concepts, I have never heard of dried teabags in this context before. I am amazed you can stamp on teabags, do you leave the tea in them? The end result reminds me of sand dollars, I wish we could see them in 3D.

I am off to search Youtube to investigate further. Have a wonderful weekend.
