Fun with ATC Challenge 79-Celebration

This is the first time I have entered into this challenge, thought it was about time.    It is the 3rd anniversary for Fun with ATC's and their challenge is Celebration with a blog hop as well,  So I thought anniversary themes normally mean leather, so I have made a leather handbag ATC.   The leather effect is as per Andy Skinner's Timeworn Techniques, I have added Treasure gold wax to give it depth and shine.  A screw brad for the clasp, chain for the handle and some embellishment.  So Happy 3rd Anniversary to you


  1. That's an awesome idea, Francesca!!! Your faux leather looks great and that handbag would be perfect for my next visit to the Opera Ball in Vienna ;)

    Thanks for playing along with us at FwATCs and good luck with the blog hop! :)

    I don't know how brutal Caro is going to be about checking up the bloghopping, but I'm afraid the comments need to be on the ATC posts. Sorry they're not directly linked to the right post from blog to blog, but here's a link direct to mine for starters... Wouldn't want you to miss out on the prizes over a technicality!

  4. That's a wonderful idea, great faux leather feeling.

  5. Cool! I've never seen a faux purse shaped ATC, and your craftsmanship is outstanding. Blessings!

  6. Cool take on the challenge :-) great idea. Love the faix leather look and how you made the ATC look like a handbag. Thanks a lot for celebrating with us at FwATCs.
    Liebe Gruesse, Suzanne
