  1. Dry your teabag. I opened this one right out to empty, then ironed it flat.
  2. Spritz teabag lightly with water, then your Distress inks. The water will help the inks blend together. Dry with heatgun or set aside to dry naturally. 20160822_192734
  3. Stamp your Stem collage onto your teabag in black Archival ink. Pick up some Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearl powder with dry paintbrush and brush over mesh design of stamped image on teabag. 20160822_191345
  4. Stamp image again onto ivory card. Tear along bottom and right hand side of ivory card and sponge the edges with sepia ink using sponging block. Attach to brick (reddish) layer, then onto folded green backing card with two-sided tape.
  5. Stamp postal mark only onto scrap of ivory card.  Cut out postal mark with circle punch. Sponge edges with sepia ink. Put square of Magic Mount beneath it and set aside.
  6. Squirt some Buttercup Liquid Pearl out, pick up with fine paintbrush and apply to flower heads. Affix coloured rhinestones to base of flowers. Set aside to dry. 20160822_19302420160822_193103
  7. Apply glue stick to back of teabag, then lift gently into place over same image on ivory card, lining them up carefully. The teabag material will not be completely flat so it can be a little tricky, but try to get the sides of the teabag lined up with the edges of the card as much as you can. 20160822_195024
  8. Fix circular postal mark into position. Secure teabag tag to top of card with spiral paperclip. 20160825_192621
