Glittery Typewriter

Do you remember the day before computer take over? When we used to use typewriter? I still remember those days, from regular typewriter back in elementary school, then at junior high upgrade to the electronic typewriter, then computer. Every time we have school project, somehow I always get to type the papers. Maybe that's how my love affair with typewriter begin.

I don't know why, but I do love the look of old fashion typewriter. I almost bought an antique one just for display. But, since I am trying to reduce clutter in our house, I resisted the urge to buy one.

Anyhoo..., I love this typewriter from Lawn Fawn's Just My Type set. I really love Lawn Fawn stamp style. It just have such a clean style to it. Have to say they're quickly become one of my favorite stamp company. I make this card using sketch TESC120 from Taylored Expression challenge, and the color combo inspired by the Color Combo Challenge 50. Only after I finished the card I realized I supposed to use gingham or flower patterns as well beside the color combo. Oh well, can't enter the card for that, I guess, but still love the color combo. :)

Here's my card. I am entering this card for Card Style Clean and Graphic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, too. You have till August 2, 2010 to play along.


I colored the typewriter with Copic markers and I added Perfect Pearls to each of the letter buttons. Just like me, my typewiter is quite girly. It has glittery handle. :) LOL. I had to chuckle when I added the glitters. I could sooo see my friend, Leslie saying with her," Vera... seriously?? Glittery typewriter? Eyebrow raised, then she would just sigh and said, "Oh well, it is so you!" Yep, could totally see her expression. She could make me laugh just by the look she gives me.

This antique (can I call it antique??) typewriter makes me happy just looking at it. Am I weird? Hmm... probably. Oh well... LOL, I accept my weirdness. Enjoy your days, peeps.
