Travel ATCs

I received my first ATCs yesterday and I love them. I purchased a pink pinboard to put my collection on!

The swop this time is 'travel' which I thought would be easy but boy was I wrong....

I made three as I was on a roll.

ATC 1 - I wanted to make an ATC suitcase. I coloured the base with crushed corduroy Tim holtz distress ink and the used a little bit of stained walnut on the outer edges.
Punched a 1.5" circle in pearlised brown card and cut in quarters to use as the suitcase corners.
I made a luggage tag and coloured with antique linen distress ink. I stamped the word 'travel' in brown ink and stuck it all together and added a little key charm to give some dimension.

ATC 2 - space travel. I thought this would have a play with the theme. Mounted some K&Co paper on silver mirri board and stamped the wording. I stuck on a yellow star button and used glossy accents to make one of the spaceships stand out more once it's dried.

ATC 3 - I mounted a scrap of K&Co paper onto silver mirri board and stamped all the writing using two different sized stamps. I then stuck a small silver helicopter charm on to add some dimension.

I hope you like these ATCs I made, I enjoyed making them as much as i enjoy receiving them :-)
