Totally Papercrafts Spots and Stripes Challenge ,,,,

Hi all ,, the weekend is here again and hopefully you’ll find time to get crafty and get those stamps and crayons out :-)

This week our lovely Caroline choose the theme and she decided on

Spots and Stripes ! :-)

We are sponsored by Alota Rubber Stamps who will be giving a voucher for $20 to one lucky entrant !

I needed to make a Thank You card for a special friend and this is it !! :-)



I used a fab Lawn Fawn set called ‘Just My Type , coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The papers are a new and from My Mind’s Eye, these are from a Portobello Road pack and I used some SU card for layering. I used a Bottle Cap inc flattened chrome cap, a Vintage Typewriter image and topped it off with an Epoxy Dot. I added some black satin ribbon from The Ribbon Girl , some faux stitching and a few black coat dots by Stamping Bella



Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them Smile

Love the "keys" on the type writer. I love that the colors you used are from the same era as the type writer.
