Stamp-a-Faire Tea Staining with Kool-Aid

I've got another Stamp-a-Faire card to share! 
This one is for Betsy Veldman's Tea Staining technique using Kool-Aid. Kool-aid! How neat it that! 

I stamped and embossed on some die cut banners, then dyed them with some red Kool-aid, which ends up turning a nice lovely pink. 

I tried to give the banners and ombre look. Not sure it turned out so well, but they look nice nonetheless. 

I also splattered some of the red Kool-Aid on the card. I threw in some enamel dots which I got at the Archivers in the Mall of America while on vacation. I don't know what I'm going to do when I run out! I love them SO much! 

Now off to work with some Paperclay! 

I shall be back later!

Jesus saves!
