Falcon Travelers

Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

When I saw this challenge prompt over at Fun With ATC’s, I immediately thought I wanted to do something with it, because I love old movies. After which it totally escaped my attention and I forgot completely about it.

Untill this weekend, when I found myself in need of an ATC to send out with my little package to my one hundredth follower (Jan). So I made a few inspired by the prompt from Fun with ATC’s and some old movie stars I loved watching when I was a child.

Here are some close-up shots and a sneek peek at the package for Jan.

I covered some ATC sized cardboard pieces with gesso and glued an old map to them.

I tore away pieces of the old map.

And distressed the ATC’s with gathered twigs distress ink.

After sanding down the edges.

I fussy cut the images from Laurel and Hardy.

Glued them down and edged them with a white paint pen.

Did a little stamping and added my info to the back.

And then they were ready for shipping =).

I had so much fun making these. My desk however isn’t very happy with me after all this. My freshly replaced drop sheet is, after the package for Jan and these ATC’s, not so fresh anymore…

Thank you all for watching and I wish you a wonderful week.

    1. I love old movies too, especially Buster Keaton. He would make a terrific ATC, as – like Stan and Olly – he has a face full of character! Your one hundredth follower can't fail to love this! Julie Ann xx
