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?View supplies list
This is an extra ATC that I sent along with the 12 Months ATC swap to thank my swap partner (who’s name starts with ‘L’) for being so patient. Ironically, this extra one came out better than most of the required ones, I think! This is definitely one of my all time favourites!
Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
These ATCs are for June (Father’s day), May (Mother’s day), August (Gladiolus is the official flower of this month) and October (Breast Cancer Awareness month).
These ATCs represent February (Beautiful Love = Valentine’s day), April (my swap partner’s birthday), December (Christmas), and November (Seeing Double = all our major wine shows are held at the end of the year during Oct. & Nov.)
These are for a Swapbot swap called “12 Months ATC swap“. Basically one has to make a set of 12 ATCs, where each ATC shows the theme of a month (i.e. 1 ATC for each month). The themes were not predetermined, so I have to decide on (and explain) each theme.
The first 4 ATCs (of 12):
These are basically March (autumn), July (winter), September (spring) and January (summer) — based, of course, on a South African year, but luckily the recipient is Australian, so no confusion there.
