How To Tea Dye

August 6, 2020

Today I wanted to share an old school technique, tea dyed paper and burnt edges! I’m pairing this technique with two Jane Austen Sets, Days-e Letter and Days-e Heart.

While I have the supplies out for this technique I like to make multiples. I started with four a2 card panels and stamped the images from Days-e Letter and Days-e Heart using Versafine onyx black ink. Its very important to use a waterproof ink.

Lets start the tea dye! I brewed a black tea as I usually would, then stamped and smeared the tea onto the paper using the tea bag. I put my paper into a baking pan to minimize the mess.

I waited for the paper to dry, then added a second layer of tea. This time I splattered the tea to create variation in color.

I wanted the floral images to stand out, so I water colored the leaves and roses using Arteza Real Brush Pens.

Here is how I burn the edges of my paper. Please only do this step if you are comfortable, and be careful! I set up a candle to burn the edges, then keep a wet paper towel and bucket of water by just in case. I am working on my stove top so I can turn on the vent hood for ventilation.

I adhered the tea dyed and burnt panels onto an a2 card base with ink blended edges.

To complete the inside of the cards I stamped Days-e Bouquet using a light tan ink. I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping to get a water colored look. When I send this card I will write on top of the stamped image with a black pen.

Thank you so much for joining me on the blog! I hope you all have a wonderful day.
