Inkspirational Challenge #29

It's time for my 'weekend warrior' post for our case challenge at Inkspirational. This week we have this fabulous card by fellow DT member Ellen. I immediately loved the vintage look to Ellen's card and how she created her own background plus how the butterfly was defined by the black outline.
And here is my take:

I created my own background using a text embossing folder then spritzed this with bronze glimmer mist. I stamped the vintage typewriter in SU crumb cake ink, fussy cut it out then used a very thin black felt tip to outline it. The sentiment is a digi with a notebook stamp over it. The type writer in on foam pads with the notelet tucked underneath. This was a lot of fun to make and I was pleased with how it turned out.

Here is Ellen's card:

The DT at Inkspiratonal all created great projects using Ellen's card as inspiration. Pop over to our challenge blog here and take a look. Then get inky and be in for a chance to win $12 gift voucher from our sponsor A Day for Daises

  7. I love the elements you chose to CASE. The text embossing and the vintage typewriter are just perfect. Great card! xx

  8. Sandie I love your CASE of my card. The typewriter with the note tucked behind it is so cute. I also love the text embossed background!

  9. This is a different take on the CASE and works really well. I love the way you've customised the note on that fab computer and the background looks great. Marina
