I used tea to paint behind the leaves of the bamboo. The long skinny panel on the left was a smooshed weed. I thought it looked really neat with these oriental images.If you don't know what I'm talking about when I say a smooshed the weed. I took a weed from my yard. I put it between 2 pieces of white cardstock and smooshed it as I ran it through my cuttlebug.
