Thank Goodness...

It's Friday!! And there was some time this week to play in Moxie Fab's Trigger, "Type Hype" :0)

Here is the inspiration pic:

A typewriter write? I really loved the keys. Loved that they were pretty, unexpectedly coloured - and also that the coloured keys didn't spell anything. If you try and make words out of the similarly coloured keys you'll end up with a headache :0)!

So that was my inspiration. Coloured typewriter keys. No actual words.


I used the original colours of the keys and added green, because the key colours reminded me so much of this striped paper from the Thrift Store collection by October Afternoon.


The focal panel is mounted on another panel which is subtly embossed with typewritten words.

I made a REALLY EXCITING discovery while making this card. These typewriter letters from Hero Arts fit inside the empty circle image from Papertrey's Polka Dot Basics set! So happy about that. I turned the circle image over to the 'negative' side to stamp the colour over the letters (loved the imperfection of this) and punched them out with a 3/4" punch.

Not too complicated, but fun!

Hope you're having a HAPPY FRIDAY! Thanks for stopping in and visiting!
