I have really been wanting to try the tea bag stamping and have been playing around with it a bit. The new Watercolor challenge is perfect for it. Those tea bags surprisingly take ink well. This was an ice tea bag I completely cut open after drying.
I applied my ink smoosh in a swiping motion and did a different color of ink at a time (two blues and one red - one of the blues was a dioxide) to kind of mimic stripes in a very loose way.
I have to say that I am totally excited about the new challenge, Kia and team. All of you inspire me with your beautiful use of ink and paint. I know I will learn a lot!

Oh my goodness Nancy, incredible is what this is. Wonderful colours and I really like the look of the tea bag. Like Susie, I did not realize you used an actual tea bag, I thought it was the stain from tea. So I learned something new today. Thanks Nancy for spending time with us in our first ever Watercolour Challenge.

These silhouetted images are so powerful and touches my heart for the historical heroes our military have always been for their brave and courage service they so selflessly carry out. The technique work on this is amazing!

Nancy, this is such a fabulous creation. I love how you used the tea bag and created for the w/c challenge at the same time. Plus, that is such a super soldier scene. I am thrilled you played in our first w/c challenge.
