Another card by my Daughter

This is the card that Cheyenne made for her Aunt Ginnese. We (my brother, mom and I )always tease Ginnese as she loves to wear tie dye. My Brother calls her a "throw back hippie". So she wanted to make a tie dye card for her.
So she made the background, with believe it or not, coffee filters which we watered down some paints, and she painted the filter. After it was dry, we used my new shapes die to cut it out.
Then she made a frame for that with the larger shapes die.
The frog is a stamp I have had forever, and I thought it looked kind of Hippie (a flower frog). As you can see she is still trying to color in the lines, but she didn't do too bad on this one. We stamped the sentiment and she used my oval punch and my SU Scallop punch to punch them out. The second is a close up of the filter. The teal and pinkish-purple are actually kind of glittery, but it doesn't show to well.
We tried to get a good picture, but it is raining today, so my new "light box" trick didn't work so well.
