Message in a Bottle

Look at this GREAT inspiration photo we're playing with a Crafty Creations this week:

photo inspiration
Love...like a message in a bottle, or time in a bottle, or... so many captions for this one!

I used the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge this week; using the typewriter as one of my panels and the pink feather (ahhh....love) in place of the circle.

Everything was edged with Antique Linen distress ink; the paper for the typewriter was also edged with Frayed Burlap. The typewriter was stamped in Frayed Burlap onto Kraft card stock; the sheet of paper is PTI's Fine Linen.

Super fun image; hope you'll use it as your inspiration and join the fun. Be sure to check out what the other designers have created HERE!


Stamps: MFT Just My Type
Papers: PTI Kraft, Sweet Blush, Fine Linen, DP by Prima
Ink: Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap distress inks
Accessories: MFT die (typewriter/paper), MS border punch (inside), PTI floral blossoms die (flowers), black dimensional enamel
