Throwback Thursday Day 4 Card

back-to-school-ccard-lt-600
Happy Thursday crafty friends,
Around the internet and on many social media sites, Thursday is known as throw back Thursday. A day in which you share photos, and other “things” from your past. So I have decided to start sharing projects that feature Stamps and or other products that are retired, no longer manufactured or have been around for quite some time. I will also share from time to time, pictures of past projects, etc.  So here is my first nod to Throwback Thursday.

Here’s a look at my card. It is a mix of some fun new products as well as some retired stamps from Close To My Heart. The finished size of the card is 5 x 6.5 and in Kraft Cardstock. I then cut a black cardstock and white cardstock  mat and then one from the Chalk It Up Paper Pack. I used my lagoon ink from the Adventure Ink Pad to ink around the edges of the patterned paper mat.  I then cut a smaller black mat and then a white one.

Here you can see that I used a stamp from the retired School Is Here stamp set from CTMH.

Here’s a closer look at the schoolhouse. This too is a retired stamp from the School Fun stamp set. I stamped it with my slate ink pad and then began coloring it with my Touch Twin Markers. I used a combination of the Carmine Marker and the Cherry Pink Marker. I then used the Mahogany Marker to color the doors. I then used the Golden Yellow Marker and the Marigold Marker  colored in the bell. For the bushes I used the Leaf Green Marker.

Here’s a closer look at the clouds from the Lifting Spirits stamp set. I stamped them with my Lagoon Ink Pad and then lightly colored them in with my watercolor pencils and my blending pen. I also lightly colored the background with the same watercolor pencil.  You can’t really tell but I stamped the schoolhouse on a separate piece of paper and then cut it out and added it to the background mat. After that, I did stamp the sentiment from the same retired School Is Here stamp set.
