Another Vintage Typewriter



I am loving this vintage typewriter stamp from creative expressions so you will just have to forgive me for using it all over again!

I started making this card last week just after my Black and White clean and simple card. I had made a couple of cards using some water colour paper that I had spray inked in yellow, orange and red and had some left over so rather than waste it I thought I'd use it with the Typewriter.

However as you will see it was very similar to my last card and I left it on the side all week thinking about how I could make it different. Then it came to me...go for 3D and add some wire and beads to form the roll bar. So whilst the layout is very similar, the colour, texture (ribbons. wire and beads) and depth of the card (decoupaged and heat embossed) do give it a different look. If you click on the closeup you will be able to see the wire between the two layers, I added two matt black beads to the wire to look like the little rubber rollers.

The typewriter has been stamped in Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and heat embossed with clear ep.

The vintage subject matter allows me to enter this card into two challenges,

"Fashionable Stamping Challenges, No digi allowed - Vintage"

"Gingerloft - Vintage or Distressed"

Thanks for looking!
