Final Coaster - for now

Here is a coaster I made for the Gingersnap Creations heart coaster swap.  This is the last of four coasters I have made for the swap. 

Since this is a heart coast swap, I put a tiny heart on it.  Can you find it?  This is a collage of vintage pictures from various sources.  It also is being entered into their Random Redhead Challenge No. 95 Typewriters.


Also I am entering this piece in Simon's Stamp and  Show Word challenge.  I did a little gesso experimentaling with the background on this piece.  Also I used a scrap from Gecko Galz to give the background a little color.  The four letters are dimensional and brings the images together as both the pen and mechnical writer are tools of the past to make the written word.
