Fabric art

I have been experimenting dying material with tea.

The background is the original colour of the material. For the darker piece I used two tea bags and for the lighter piece one tea bag; very technical! I want to use the lighter piece for a project, so I experimented stamping on the darker piece. I then coloured it with some Distress Inks using a waterbrush. Although not perfect, I was quite pleased with the result and so used it to create this piece of fabric art.
