Are you planning to give handmade this holiday season? If so, you must check out this art tutorial that artist Mandy Behrens shared on Poppytalk. Mandy used common household products to create beautiful art with an uncommon result. Kitchen colorants like coffee, tea, and wine simply applied to watercolor paper become a warm, inviting, and naturally stunning background.

Mandy stresses the importance of letting the stain happen. The effects are perfectly imperfect. The process allows you to make any potential holiday card, stationery set, or art print one-of-a-kind. Definitely my cup of tea!
