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!
