I started thinking of secret and urgent desires of gentlemen, perhaps of an era gone by. A"gentleman caller" chez a lady was never appropriate and would tarnish her reputation. However, there were always ladies not too picky on reputation and more concerned about their bread and butter (and a new silk gown...) if you get my drift.
The atc's are about men, but they don't show men.

Smudgy Antics Challenge: Anything goes (but with a twist into macabre, dark, creepy or saucy... this is saucy)
Anything but Cute Challenge: Masculine
Stamps and Stencils: Small is beautiful (meaning atc's, tags... the likes)
I made the background paper. It is a babywipe, dried up long ago but kept for just this purpose. It had blue ink from cleaning some stamps. I placed wooden numbers on it to get a stencil and sprayed everything with blue and brown Tattered Angels mist. While it was drying I took all my vintage office stamps and stamped all around. When it was dry I cut it into three pieces for backgrounds, added Victorian photos of ladies, the spray painted numbers and some found objects.
