Take a look around any boutique and you will see may items that have been antiqued by applying some type of tea staining. Even the paper crafting industry offers tea stained supplies that can tend to be a bit pricey. Today, a few of our amazing designers are sharing some fun tea staining techniques that you can use to create your own "vintage" items for very little cost.
Your challenge is to use one of the tea staining techniques below. Then create a project using your tea stained results. You can choose to re-create an exact project from one of the team members or design something of your very own. Some of the tea staining techniques will take a bit of time, so feel free to get something brewing now, and work on your actual project later on tonight or even tomorrow. Remember, projects don't need to be uploaded until Monday at noon EST to be eligible for the contest, so feel free to take your time!
Here's a look at the fabulous ideas the team has developed for some fantastic tea staining techniques you can do yourself!
