Vintage Typewriter


I have recently found a few of Tim Holtz's new dies have found their way into my studio - not really sure how?! So I just had a little experiment on how I might use them - and this is what I came up with! I used grunge paper, Little Black Dress and Pewter Fresco Finish Paints, Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Inks, Old Paper and Antique Linen Distress Stains, a D Book Ring and an MDF plaque. Gosh, that was a bit of a shopping list wasn't it!
Simon Says Stamp and Show have Anything Goes as their challenge this week - and so I thought I'd enter this! After all, it might just be their type!
