Blog Hop:
Me (you're here)

This stamp brings back memories of learning to type.  I learned on a typewriter 
that was very similar to this one.

I stamped this image on a piece of splash watercolor with Versafine ink
and heat embossed with clear powder.  It gave the machine a shiny look
like the one I learned on.

I added a bit of watercolor to the surrounding images and used
a marker to color the pencils and flowers.

The sentiment is from Serendipity too.
I love the pretty font.

It's been fun joining in the Serendipity Blog Hop!
Thanks for the invitation Mary, and the warm
welcome from the other hoppers.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

COOL card Bonnie! LOVE the black and white with just a touch of color from your water colors! The year I learned typing in school we had all brand new electric typewriters and they were all turquoise...I'm sure the guys all loved that! Funny how that memory just popped into my head after seeing your card! :0)

I love the way you used this typewriter stamp, Bonnie, and fun that it reminds you of the one you learned to type one. I love the light water color you added to your card with just a bit of red, love that!

How pretty, Bonnie! Love the light wash of color w/ the splashes of red here & there. How fun that you learned on a typewriter! I tried to take typing, but I only lasted a day, lol.

Fun artsy card. Great colour palette. xx

Brings back memories for me too - my Mum insisted I take typing in grade 10 (she didn't want to end up typing my essays for me!!) and we learned on old typewriters like this one. Love the black and white with just the little bits of red and pale blue. Perfect sentiment for it too!

Very cool! I swear my dad had this very typewriter. :-)

Mary Dew Lee said...

Thanks so much for joining us Bonnie! And great idea to emboss the typewriter to get the shine!

What a wonderful stamp Bonnie, and I love how you used it . It's perfect in black and white with just that bit of red! I also have to agree that the font of that sentiment is fabulous! What a fun card!

Who would have guessed we would now be using our typing skills on a quiet keyboard with easy access to a back button to correct our mistakes.?!? TFS your wonder vintage typewriter and CAS design, Bonnie. Hugs...

This is so cool! Love the soft colours of your splash background and then that amazing typewriter image. I learned on something similar as well. :) Bring back good memories! Such a fantastic card Bonnie. So excited to see you in the Serendipity Hop again! Congrats, my friend! xx

Nicely done card with a great image. It does bring back lots of memories!

Maxine D said...

Very pretty card Bonnie - the sentiment is fabulous!
You are dating yourself to say you learnt to type on a machine that looked like that! I learned on a portable one that my Dad had - it must have been one of the first portable ones now I think about it!
Blessings
Maxine

Bobby said...

I learned on a typewrite like this too, Bonnie, back when I was a sophomore in high school. I love the vintage look with the soft coloring on parts of the image and the bright pops of red.

Your typewriter is perfect for your vintage card

Mary Holshouser said...

Brings back memories of high school, learning
to type. Nostalgia is fun - especially
when you don't have to work with the
particular piece of equipment. Great card.
