Check out my recycled A"TEA"Cs for Helga's challenge!

I have been on vacation this week and have finally had time to participate in some swaps and challenges.  Helga is the owner of ARTchix Studios and she runs a weekly challenge on her blog, My Artistic Life.  This week she made an ATC from the packaging of her favorite tea.  I had been saving the box from  my Peach Detox Tea because I loved the design on the INSIDE of the box!  The first ATC is made from the outside of the box and I added the image, words and  copper scrap.  The next two were made from the printed cardboard on the inside of the box. I colored them with colored pencil and gel pens, added images, words, and more german scrap.
This was a fun challenge and I liked how they turned out. I will share more of my art adventures soon!

apparently we like the same tea! Yogi teas are my fave and their new boxes have the henna designs inside and out. I actually turn my boxes inside out and use them to wrap gifts. :-D

great ATC's Jen!
