I made this ATC for a swap theme of “hard-working women”. When I saw these great vintage images of telephone operators, I knew that was the job I wanted to create my ATC around. I used a page of the phone book (not vintage) for my background and put a layer of Inkssentials ™ Glue n’ seal over the top to protect it from future yellowing. All the images were found on the internet. With the dreamy expression on the operator’s face, I couldn’t help but add the words to this ATC, which I printed from my computer.
