Three Typewriter Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, June 20, 2018
Hi, Connie Mercer here with cards made using the new Eclectic Typewriter Stamp! This is a fun stamp for card making but I can also see it used for scrapbook pages and other papercraft projects too.



Instructions: 
1. The background of this card was created using the Large Mesh Stencil by sponging two different Archival inks through it, Watering Can and Aquamarine. 
2. The Typewriter was stamped on white cardstock and shaded in with same Aquamarine ink. 
3. The sassy lady was stamped on white cardstock and colored in using Faber Castell pencils. She was shaded and trimmed out. 
4. The Polaroid frame stamp was stamped on white cardstock, stamped and trimmed out. Behind the Polaroid image the French Script Texture Stamp was used for the text. The sentiment was added to the top of the typewriter. 
5. Speckle card front with ink or paint.

Instructions: 
1. The background was created using the large Polka Dots stencil in the same way as the first card. The stencil was placed on top of the card base and ink was applied with sponges.The background came to life very quickly.
2. The little bird was stamped out on white cardstock, shaded with the same inks that were used for the background and then trimmed out. The typewriter was stamped on white cardstock and shaded with one color and then trimmed out.


3. A cluster was created, in the center of the card, by stamping the Weathered Stripes Texture stamp as a focal point for the typewriter image to be adhered. The little bird was adhered, along with the sentiment, on the typewriter.
4. Speckle the card with ink or paint.

Sometimes we need a quick card and this was the inspiration behind this design.


Instructions:
1. Applying several colours of Distress Oxide inks to your craft mat, add water and run the white cardstock through the inks. Keep picking up colour until you have the look you love. Let it dry a few minutes or heat dry the inked cardstock. 
2. Stamp the Typewriter on water color paper with Archival Jet Black ink. Use a water paint brush and colour in the Typewriter with one of the Distress Oxide inks used to create the backgroundof the card. 
3. Using the balloons from the 10th Anniversary stamp or the Party Time stamp set, stamp them above the Typewriter and colour in with the Distress Oxide inks used in creating the background of the card. Stamp the sentiment and adhere it to the Typewriter image. Speckle with ink.
