Tea Bag......Stamping

I am doing some prep work for a class this month:

I thought I would play with my stash of recycled tea bag papers

Tea Bag Papers
Stamped with Pigment Ink and Stamps

These can be used as is,
or cut out and used individually.

Cursive Writing

This is a rubber stamp by

Tree Bark

These can be used as is,
or cut out and used individually.


The lower tea bag was stamped with office style stamps
I collected from thrift stores over the years.
I am always attracted to office products...

Pigment Based Inks

It is important to use Pigment Based Inks when stamping.
Dye based inks are watersoluble,
so if you paint over them or use gel medium they will run.

I plan to incorporate tea bags into a few new class samples
for my upcoming

See you in class soon...
