My TYPE of trigger



As I said in my last post I am really enjoying working with everyday objects especially things with a vintage look. I was so happy that the trigger this week at Moxie Fab was a picture of a typewriter, it gave me an excuse to work with a "typing" theme. I purchased this digital stamp some time ago but really wanted to use it in a different way, other than placing one typewriter on a card. The typewriters I have used is the same image in different sizes.  To get the different colours I placed  colour squares on a document using  open office at the back of each of the transparent black typewriters, I then added the text to the three typewriters. I   printed out the typewriters, cut them out and placed on the background paper that I created using repeated text of the words "funny,  reliable, supportive, talented,  kind, awesome". 

I am definitely having an early night tonight. Selling my wares at Handmade Canberra is certainly making me create consistently,  I am enjoying getting some  routine in what I love doing and it's a great challenge coming up with new ideas for all my cards and other things I am making and selling.

Make it Monday-Anything goes in the 100th linking party

Fabulous card! I love how you've repeated the image in different sizes (one of the fab things about using digi stamps is how you can resize them to suit) and the repeated words across the background is just a perfect touch.

Thanks for joining in the challenge at OSAAT this week. :)
