This is a birthday card for my nephew, who is in his twenties and is a computer 'whizz' - I hope he will know what the typewriter is!
I used a sketch and colour scheme from a new challenge blog , Poppy Sketches .
The typewriter is from a Serif Craft Artist CD ( not sure name of CD as contained several digi-kits - this one was Vintage Typewriter.) I added the ink splodge and recoloured them both to match the colour scheme. Then I brought it into the Silhouette Cameo for cutting. I downloaded a typewriter style font for the sentiment and stamped a Paper Artsy grunge stamp over it, adding an enamel dot.
P.s - Looking at the colours on my computer screen, they do not look the exact red, teal and grey of the real card!
As well as Poppy Sketches, I'd like to enter:
