My friend Edie threw out a challenge to make a card using supplies that aren't necessarily new but that have never been used. I'm sure we all have plenty of supplies that fit that category - any stamper that says they don't is either lying or in denial! I bought this stamp set from Impression Obsession back in August but had yet to use it. I've also had these buttons for ages but only used them once before, so they needed some love too. I let the buttons dictate the color scheme of my card, and the rest is simple. The cardstock is PTI white, the buttons are from SU, and the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Night Quite Navy, Apricot Appeal, and Certainly Celery. I really need to get some more flesh colored Copics. The only one I have is a rosy flesh tone, but for these ladies I wanted more of a tan tone. So I was forced to use a blender pen and Creamy Caramel ink on their backs. I am terrible at coloring with this technique, so they came out all streaky. Other than that, I like this fun card!
