Love Defined ATC

It's been a while since I made an atc. This week the challenge at Grungy Monday is to make an atc in the style of Tim Holtz. This challenge worked so well with the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show which was a recipe challenge -- show torn edges, distress inks, button, and wings. I started the atc an manila atc card from Ranger. I sprayed it with Perfect Medium and wrinkled it up. I covered it first with vintage photo distress stain and then swiped it with picket fence. I stamped Tim's words stamp on kraft paper and tore the edges. I adhered the strip to the atc. I die cut the heart, inked it up with aged mahogany and stamped it with this wonderful stamp of Tim's. I die cut the wings and painted them with a gold dabber. I added the button in the corner.
At the Kraft Journal blog, the Make It Monday challenge is La-La-Love You. The heart and the sentiment say it all.
