Vintage ATCs

Cookie? ATC
Genuine Chicken ATC

I just love these two ATCs! I have never considered myself much of a “vintage artist”, but these two came out quite nice. They were made for the “Vintage ATC Swap” on swapbot.

The “Cookie?” ATC was so easy to make – I used a sheet of paper that was already covered with vintage labels, picked the spot that I wanted to show on the ATC and I was done. Except, it just feels so wrong if it’s not complicated!! So I ended up adding a word. Then layered the girl a few times. And then added some ribbon. And of course something to dress up the ribbon. Does anyone else ever do that?

The chicken was… genuinely harder. I had downloaded this beautiful vintage image from The Vintage Moth of a rooster and a hen, and wanted to use the rooster-part on my ATC. Well, the poor thing never recovered from all my aging and inking, so I ended up using the hen 🙂 Why the word “genuine?” I don’t know. Really. But it works, huh?
