Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #77!

Little pats on my back as this week I followed Taylors sketch a little closer...
This is a fun new set that is coming to the farm August 11th! Really neat as typography is smoking hot in the papercrafting world right now. My brother would be so proud...he has a special passion for typography as a graphic artist in Vancouver. I am noticing these worlds collide more and more as a new crafters letterpress machine was introduced at CHA...going to have to get a closer look at that!

I added some fun office elements such as the paperclip and the dymo label gun. Did you know those letter stickers are normally green? I just went over them with my copic markers as I wanted black letters. I also added some extra highlight to my HOT PINK typewriter with my E50 markers. I airbrushed the center to draw your eye in!
The center circle is very sturdy as well. I mounted a piece of cardstock on a piece of maya road chipboard....mimicking all those fun and funky circles in the graphic 45 paper. You can find this line of paper from my friends Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie!

Here are all my card deets:
