Foiled typewriter


I was up at the A Blog Named Hero facebook page today with this foiled typewriter. I keep coming back to this set, I love typewriters. It's pretty big so it's a bit tricky to come up with new ways to use it so the design tends to be the same-ish but with different techiques. This time I used silver foil on black cardstock. I used embossing ink and bonding powder with my laminator to foil it and it's very pretty. I colored it a bit using colored pencils to make it separated from the background and I splattered some silver ink around it. To warm it up I used bright pink cardstock and vellum with gold dots. Gold and silver looks good together I think. 

I hope you like it, it's som much fun to experiment with foil!

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
