My Oldest Ink Pad

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash  grabbed my attention - use your oldest ink. The other day I found a very old Colorbox Petal Point Pigment Option Pad at the back of a drawer. Several of the colours had dried up or come apart from the base and had to be chucked.

With the ink colours that were left, I made a background on a tag. I randomly stamped with a Kaisercraft tiny dot stamp and then stamped the numbers(7 gypsies). I stamped the butterfly (Anita's) three times and then doodled a frame.

As well as Shopping Our Stash, I'd like to enter:

  2. Gorgeous inky work Marina, it's a lovely fusion of colours as a backdrop to the butterflies.
