Vintage Typewriter


Don't you just love the vintage images from the Secretary Pool plate!  Here, I've combined the images with the Ephemeral Backgrounds plate, stamping the images in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock. To add color, I dabbed Antique Linen and Mustard Seed Distress Stain on a Gelli Plate, then smooshed my stamped panel into the ink, lifted up and heat set. The sentiment on the paper in the typewriter is from the new Quote & Quotables plate. To embellish I tied a Double Bow using with Black Wrinkled Ribbon and added a Typewriter Charm.

Wonderful color palette and I am so hooked on that typewriter. The type charms seem the perfect embellishment for it, especially with your wrinkled ribbon! Terrific card, Lisa!
