March ATC

The March ATC challenge was set by Alma on do-crafts and the theme was NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINK, so I did 'tea' as I bought some cute buttons while at the craft show in Farnborough last month...

I was to send it to Tania, which she hopefully has received by now (so just got it in in March, lol, I was very slow with this month, but just not had a minute to myself)...



I cut out the size of the ATC from the packing of Stevens new bedding, and picked the top off to show the corrugated piece, (been looking at Val's blog and her fantasitc work)...

I stained it with a used tea bag, lol... the writing was cut using the Sizzix Neon Mini Decorative strip and all coated in matt mod podge...
