Is it a total contradiction to have "tie-dye" and "army" in the same sentence?



My brother just graduated from Basic and AIT.  We had a little get together for him this weekend and I was in charge of the banner.  I started with a plain sheet and did my best to create a camo tie-dye (RIT kelley green and cocoa brown):



Then I cut and sewed the squares and used freezer paper stencils for the letters.



In use at the party:



I'm super proud of him!  Thanks for looking!
