Working with teabags take one

I am too thrifty to just make use a heap of teabags especially for this project so I have waited and saved the teabags till I had enough to to something with. The first run though I used gell medium on both sides of the teabags to adhere it to polyester sheer. Then I stitched a bit with some varigated thread. finally I tried to "layer" a print. Stamping did not work at all and thermofax prints left this impression but a lot of the detail was left out because the paint sat on the surface of the gell medium instead of binding into the tea bags. I did try stamping too but there was no impression on top of the gell medium. But arent the colours delicious. They look like antiqued leather and the fabric itself is quite robust
