Stamp-a-faire 2013: Tea Staining Techniques
I chose to use Melissa Phillips technique on my card with a couple of differences, she used black tea and soaked it for days. I used coffee and soaked it for only three hours, next time I will do it like she did because I really like the darker color.
I used one of the sketches from this morning on this card. My flower didn't "fluff" up as much as I would have liked and this sketch has two flowers which I think makes them look fluffier up together. Rather than using different card stock on the sections I decided to try a version of Erin's technique and "paint" on the paper with stain. I really like how it turned out.
This my second project for today. I'm 12 hours in and only have two projects done... But never fear, I WILL complete all challenges before Noon on Monday!
Thanks for visiting!
