Hi Kiara! Welcome!


I've heard of tea dragging and even tried it once. You steep a cup of tea, then drag the wet tea bag over your paper. Then you open up the tea bag sprinkle the granules around to give it character. Let it sit and dry. Dust the granules off.
Don't forget to download some of your card samples to the gallery.

Hi Kiara - this place is great isn't it?

I don't have exactly what you are looking for but here are two things that might help.
