Type Hype over at Moxie Fab World


The Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is this fabulous pic
 I took inspiration from the old time typewriter and went for a vintage type card

Vintage Typewriter

I started with some white card stock and this Pink Paislee stamp set

Spring Jubilee - Clear Stamps 00609
 I took a number of the stamps and made a collage by using Pumice Stone distress ink.  I then sponged the ink all over and used a tool to distress the edges.  I then inked them with Vintage Photo.  I stamped the typewriter with Black Archival ink and used the Vintage Photo to distress.  I spritzed the panel with some gold Perfect Pearls and water mist.  The card base is some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.  I finished the card off with a Cherry Lynn flourish and  a Dienamics rolled rose.  My sentiment was made with the computer using Travelling Typewriter font(free here from dafont.com) die cut with a Dienamics die.

I'm adding this to Die Cut Diva's challenge Anything goes challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by this week.  And a big welcome to all my new followers.... hope you enjoy your stop over.

Hello Dawn
Obviously seeing me yesterday, threw you into a Shabby mode, as this card has definitely got a feel of this genre about it.
It is warm and soft, and your type- writer is sitting very happy amongst it all. A lovely card.
Smiles:)

Dawn this card turned out so well. I love the aged look the pumice stone gives the card. And your rose is the perfect spot of color for a finishing touch.

The soft vintage background is so professionally crafted Dawn. The antique typewriter is the perfect accent!
