You are not old! You are vintage!

You are not old only vintage card
For the background I have watercoloured using stencil from My Favorite Things. I have graduated from red to orange to yellow. It is easy to blend the colours using watercolour. I love the not so perfect background. I used watercolour paper to do the colouring. Then I die cut the typewriter die also from MFT and stamped the image in black. Made a slit to inset the paper. For the paper, I sponged Antique Linen distress ink, sponged Aged Mahogany distress ink on Cup stain stencil from TCW and stamped the sentiment. I mounted the typewriter on the watercoloured stencil background panel with some bunched up thread on the background. I love this sentiment -” You are not old! You are vintage! “. I think it is cheeky and perfect for grandpas and older men. 
This is the third post for today. Here is my first and second post, if you like to have a look at them 🙂 I am having a great time crafting and blogging today. Perfect day according to me. One more week of school holidays and then back to school, Hooray! Love to get back into the routine. 
Thanks for stopping by!
