Peace

There is something about a hot air balloon floating over the earth that makes me think of peace which is challenge # 34 from Stampin Sisters in Christ. My DH has been on one many years ago and said that it was a wonderfully peaceful experience which is why I chose this image. On Melanie's blog she demonstrated how to make a tie dye image and I also decided to incorporate that into this card. It was not that difficult although it took me a few tries to not get it too wet. I do think that her suggestion of a mini spritzer instead of an empty Windex bottle!  This card is also for the sketch challenge on StampTV. I used GinaK Pure Luxury white and Sea mist. Some brilliant blue and bravo burgundy from SU and the ribbon was from SU. What I really like is the map DP from October Afternoon's "Road Map". I hope you like it and Peace be with you!

Oh my, I've never seen a tie dye effect on a card before, what a great idea! And your DH is a brave soul, you couldn't get me up in a balloon no matter what sort of peace was promised! But it is a great idea to illustrate that word, they do LOOK peaceful when floating serenely past. Thank you for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
