Tie Dye with Distress Inks

                I was inspired to make this card following the challenge at Double D with the theme of Neons/ Brights:

I don't have anything that is Neon, so I went with the brights. I started with a piece of water color paper, and sponged on Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves in a circular pattern. I put water droplets in the yellow center, then blew through a straw to get a tie dye effect. Once dry, I die cut this out with the T-Shirt framelits from Stampin Up.

For the peace sign, I die cut a framed circle and three straight pieces, and sponged more ink onto them. This time I just spritzed with water, shook them a little, and used a rag to soak up the excess water. The card panel was sponged and sprayed the same way.

I used my Stamp Perfect tool to stamp the words from a Stampin Up retired set. Once assembled, I added some flower rhinestones. In real life this card is much brighter than the photo. My Ottlite may have been a little to close :)

Thanks so much for your visit!
