Adios Cute Typewriter — FMS236

We have another sketch challenge for you over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week our super talented friend, Rita Wright, is our hostess.  Check out what she has for us:

Since I’m still in mourning over the upcoming retirement of some beloved stamp sets, I used one of these sets for this sketch.  I love the cute little typewriter in the Tap Tap Tap set.

Adios Cute Typewriter 1I used a color palette of Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray, and my favorite new In Color which will be available starting June 1st, Peekaboo Peach.  It is such a happy shade of peach and I know I am going to have fun using it with many different colors.
I used a piece of Schoolhouse dsp for the background.  I love how the fun polka dots on the dsp mimic the cute typewriter alphabet.

We hope you’ll play along and create your own card using the sketch!  If you’d like some inspiration, head over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team created this week.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Little Pink Typewriter — FMS157

I’m so glad you came by today!  It’s my turn to host the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches this week, and I hope you’ll play along.  Ready to see the sketch?  Here it is:

I recently got the Tap Tap Tap stamp set.  I didn’t think I needed that set, and when I put in an order for a few other supplies it somehow ended up in my order.  Does that ever happen to you too?  Since it was 95 degrees here again today, I just can’t make Fall or Christmas cards, so I was glad to have this set handy.

Little Pink TypewriterI always thought it would be fun to have a typewriter this color.  Well, I guess I can now.  I watercolored the image after stamping it with StazOn Black ink.  The color scheme is Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana with Basic Black and Very Vanilla.
