Fun with ATCs challenge

Good morning, yes another post today!
Over at the Fun with ATCs blog the new challenge is vintage and as it's been a while since I've found time to enter any challenges I thought this would be a good one to start with. (And my mojo came knocking so when he arrives I listen)
I've made two ATCs so here they are my Mr and Mrs......

 I kept them pretty simple. They are cut from mountboard and to me, the images have a lovely vintage feel. (but as they are my own design stamps it's not surprising.)
 Mrs has been stamped in coffee archival ink, masked and the background stamped in green. I used Distress inks and markers to add colour and covered with a layer of clear UTEE. Once this had been melted and cooled I rubbed Walnut Stain Distress ink over to give a enamelled aged feel before adding a final layer of UTEE and melting it. A simple key embellishment to add the finishing touch.
Mr has been done similarly but using a different background in plum and a pen nib to finish.
I enjoyed making these and hope you like them.
