Challenge #164 Back in the Day at Shopping Our Stash

If your are looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post please  scroll down
Remember the tools you used when you first started crafting, well dig deep into that closet and revisit them.Shopping Our Stash wants you to go back in the day and use them to make your project.
I have been crafting for a while so I went back to the Coluzzle boy it makes me appreciate my die cutting machine.in case you don’t know what I am talking about here is a picture.
I did take my eyelet setter with me but only had tiny eyelets to use and they just didn’t work with my flowers.
I stamped the flowers and leaves, coloured with my watercolour pencils and a blender pen. now before  glimmer mists I use to use and still do Opal liquid pearls mixed with water to make a glaze it gives a nice sheen. Again before die cutting machines there were only scissors so I fussy cut them all out then popped the flowers up.
The finished inside of the card ready for the next birthday.
Thanks for looking today and you know you want to go back to  basics and join us at SOSS for the challenge.

Wow, Coluzzle and all that fussy-cutting. That REALLY makes you appreciate the die-cutting tools we have now, huh? And making your own glimmer mist - I still do that with Perfect Pearls. So easy to do, and less expensive since you already have all the stuff. :D

Deb Kane said...

Wow, had forgotten all about my coluzzle (such a hoarder I have both oval & round LOL). Love, love, love the purple and those flowers are fabulous, I will remember that shimmer tip when my shimmer paint runs out. TFS

Thanks for the picture of the Coluzzle - I had no idea what it was! LOL! What a gorgeous card, Barb! Kudos for making your own shimmery mists!

Donna said...

UGH - the coluzzle!! I never could cut ovals or circles with that thing!! I still have one and will never ever use it again LOL
Your card is FAB I love all the purples (of course)

Tracy said...

Such a pretty card :)
Your flowers look shiny, is it the paper or did you do something to them?
I still have my colulzzles and have used them a few times…but not much ;)

Lindsey said...

Beautiful card, Barb, the flowers look amazing with the liquid pearls/water mix! I don't have a coluzzle but I used my Fiskars shape cutter a lot before my Cuttlebug arrived. :)

Gail said...

Jessi Fogan said...

I had the Fiskars shape cutter too - and mucked up at least half of what I tried to cut out with it. UGH! This turned out BEAUTIFULLY - love that sheen! I'll have to try that painting technique :)
