Vintage Typewriter

This weeks DT piece for Creative Expressions uses the Vintage Typewriter designed by Sam Poole.
I coloured the background piece with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and spritzed with water. I then machine stitched lines across the page and used my binding edge punch along one side. This piece was then added to co-ordinated Bazzill card and mini paper clips added to two sides.
The vintage typewriter has been stamped onto white card with black Archival Ink, sponged with vintage photo ink to age and I have added the sentiment "A Little Message Just For You" to the paper. I stamped the typewriter alphabet keys onto white card, sponged with vintage photo ink, cut out and added VINTAGE to the card.
I have added text to a small piece of white card and rolled to form a scroll, tied with Bakers Twine and added to the card along with a pen nib from Tim's Idea-Ology range. To complete I have added a hinge clip to the top of the card.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
