Tuesday Trigger

Moxie Fab World has another Tuesday Trigger and this time I actually had time to play along :) You can find it Here .

Here is the inspiration photo:

and here is what I came up with:

For the typewriter I used the Cricut Heritage Cartridege, I didn't want it floating in space so I tried to make a table for it to sit on.  I used Tim Hotlz's Woodgrain embossing folder and Walnut stain ink to give it that wood look.   I used the same cartridge for the piece of Parchment and did a little inking along the edges for aging.  Stamped a Studio G sentiment stamp for my greeting.

I went with this Cosmo Cricket, Fleuriste paper to mimic the colored keys on the typewriter, the paper had a bit of a distress background already so I just did a bit more distressing along the edges and added a bit more ink around the edges too.

You have until this Sunday August 12th to give this a try.

We were blessed with a little more rain again, things are starting to get a little more green to them, that is so nice to see.

Hope you enjoyed a great weekend and that the week ahead brings wonderful things,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
