Cardabilities Reveal #11

Hey there people. Happy day to you! Here is today's sketch reveal over at Cardabilities:

ooooh, I know. really great right?? And here is my take on it:
I pulled out some older Scenic Route papers. You really can't go wrong with orange and blue. I also used some of the Lawn Fawn stamps I have been coveting for such a long time now. It's taken a while for them to really get some use, but they are getting it now, I tell ya!

Here's a bit of a close up:
The tag was cut using my Cricut and the Tags, Boxes and Bags cartridge. I used a T1 Copic for shading the typewriter and an orange too. Colored up the push pins with the Aqua Mist Copic Trio. (not sure of the numbers) I also stamped some text behind my sentiment strip for a bit more visual detail. (PTI Background Basics: Text Style).

And that's about it! Thanks for stopping in today. The husb and I have celebrated our 10 year anniversary this month!! I will hopefully get back here to tell you aaaalllll about it.

As someone who actually learned to type on a typewriter like that (way, way back in middle school), I just love it! It's a great, creative card.

I have never seen a cuter typewriter and you did a wonderful job with the colors. I just purchased my first Copic's. I am really into colored images these days!!!

I hope you day is full of blessings!
