A Little Message Just For You..........

.................using the new Vintage Typewriter set from Creative Expressions.
I have created a chunky ATC for my first piece with this wonderful new set from Sam Poole. The ATC has been coloured with Distress Stain Black Soot and I have cut ATC's to fit the front and back cover using Tim's ATC & Corners Die.
On the front I have added text from an old book and distressed the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  I have stamped the lovely vintage typewriter onto white card and added the sentiment "a little message just for you" to the paper and then added clear embossing powder over the top to give a sheen.
On the reverse I have stamped the alphabet in black Archival Ink and added the stamp image in coffee Archival ink, masking the image and then stamping the alphabet.  I have also cut up the alphabet to add the text, INK, STAMP and TYPE. The edges have been aged with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I have also added a Hinge Clip from Tim's Idea-Ology range, which I feel fits perfectly with these images.
Both sides have been decorated in the same way adding the stamp image along with the perforated border, again aged with Vintage Photo. I have also added two vintage cotton spools to the bottom of my ATC, acting as a stand again coloured with Distress Stain Black Soot.
The top of the ATC has the typewriter ink bottle added, another image from the set along with a paper clip, Hinge Clip and vintage cotton spool.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Tracy x x
