Halloween Tea Bag Holder

Ah, the tea bag holder! What a great Halloween treat because it holds a packet of black tea! This project also uses masking. See how the star looks like it's behind the witch's hat? It's so easy to do, and I'll show you how below! To get the multiple colors on the tag, you ink up the different sections of the stamp with markers! I emphasized "drink" since we're giving a tea bag, and the little spider is black! The rest of the tag stamp is inked up with an Old Olive Marker. The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!, except the black tea bag! For masking, whatever image you want in the foreground is what you will stamp first.
Then take a thin piece of paper - I like to use printer paper - and stamp your image on it, cut it out very carefully so it is exact, and place it on top of your first image.
Stamp the image you want in the background while your mask is in place.
Remove your mask and WOO HOO - the star is peeking out from behind the hat!
