Shopping our Stash #187 - Gettin' Inky! Use your OLDEST ink!




Now here's another fun challenge for you this week at Shopping our Stash - use your oldest ink! The oldest ink that I still have is a PSX pad called Bubble Gum, and I bought it about 10 years ago on clearance. Who knows how long it had been on the shelf at that little store that didn't even carry craft supplies any more! It's still juicy as ever though. I paired it with another ink I've had for ages, Citrus from Adirondack, and an ancient stamp, and made a bright baby card.


Supplies: Bubble gum PSX ink; Citrus Adirondack ink; baby feet stamp unknown; dots & sentiment from PTI; classic small circle Nesties; banner die from Wplus9; buttons from stash

Simple and sweet and so cheery!

So what's YOUR oldest ink?  join in with the SOS crew and get your inky on!


And you have until Monday,February 9th to join in!
xoxo,
Jessi

I hate using pastels, in general, so when I saw this bright neon baby card I said, "Self, now why didn't you think of that?" Seriously - I love how you buck the trends and make things truly your own!

Helloooo, thanks for popping by. Cute card work and just in the nick of time. My niece is having a baby soon. Thanks for this idea . I don't participate blog wise in the challenges. But, I try to incorporate them into thoughts and projects. Amazing with that ink, and it is still vibrant. Keep smiling and creating

This is utter cuteness! If I ever bought a "new baby" stamp on purpose, it would have to be one like this.
That's funny... one of my oldest ink pads is an Adirondack as well!
