So after I finish my cards my kids insist on seeing what I made. Today was not "Great card mom!". It was more like "It is nice, but it is not you." Today's Limited Supplies Challenge was to use an embellishment you just had to have but never use. It had to be a floral card too. I just had to have the Pretties kit but am never fully satisfied with how they turn out. I can never get them to be the exact color I want them to be. So can you tell I tried dying the flower More Mustard? If there is a trick, I would love to know it. I use re-inker and a small amount of water in an old brad container. I used the Spritzer again to add some more color to the flower. So it will fit again for the Ways to Use it challenge from yesterday. The Old Olive one I colored with the marker. I never know what to do with the hat pins, so this was another reach for me. I bought the Silver Hodge Podge kit because I love the elements ,but I am just not a silver person. I thought since the Pretties Kit was silver this would be a good time to use them some more. I love the rub-ons but just do not use them as often. I wanted a little more around the words than just the hardware so I used the small and large oval punches to make a frame for around the hardware and words. Have a Great Weekend!!!
