Using Teabags

Morning and I have two DT posts today the first one is for the "Use a household item/product as an embellishment" challenge at A Place To Start-
paper clips/coffee filter/tissue paper flower/waxed paper or in my case used tea bags(which I saved last Summer and just found in the clearance lol)lol.

I stamped on the teabags with Beautanicals Teasel stamp(another neglected stamp) and also on the background,stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie.

The background was made using a technique from Tracy Evans-you score the card every inch and use your bone folder then starting at the top drag a Distress ink pad in brown lightly down the card-turn around and do it the other way I also inked in green too -a perfect fence!!!

A wonderfully inventive card. I love how you constantly teach me new techniques, things I have never heard of. Thank you.

So today's lesson is all about tea bags and scoring, the wooden fence looks amazing, and that teasel stamp is gorgeous.
