Tea on Thursday 12: Gum Leaf Prayer Flag

Can you guess what sort of tea ? It's cranberry  tea, with a couple of cranberry and pomegranate tea bags thrown in for good colour! Here I have laid down some gum leaves on the fabric, and pressed tea bags over the top, and then taking a few tea bags with a pair of kitchen tongs, I dabbed the fabric .I then traced the outlines and drew the flowers in with a permanent marker.
This is a prayer flag I've made for The Talking Needles Project held in conjunction with Timeless Textiles.  This flag with the 100+ others will be auctioned off on Sunday at 2pm - you can even bid online by contacting Timeless Textiles.
