I hand cut the heart out of kraft paper and the cream heart shape from foam core board using a craft knife. Then I covered the ATC base with a page from a book called Anne of Green Gables. I painted all three items with Tim Holtz distress paints. The flock of birds are stamped from IndigoBlue's Nature II set in Jet Black Archival ink. Then I drew on the foam heart and the red heart with a permanent marker to add the fake stitching and wording. Lastly I added the hand stitching, the brads and the mini set of keys. I hope the link to my blog works, I have never done this in a forum before...

My ATC card: HOME is where your story begins.. I downloaded an open book image off the net, reduced the size and printed off three to stack as an open booklet. I added the Once upon a time first before printing.
I then created a Quill pen from a toothpick and pattern papers..
The title was a quote I reduced in size and cut to fit my ATC...
To create this ATC I started off with an offcut of brown cardstock just smaller than 2.5" x 3.5 "
I covered it in a fair amount of gesso and sprinkled it with fine crystal glitter. I waited until it was almost dry, but till soft, and then a snowflake embossing folder was used over the gesso to create some texture, and in lifting off the embossing older, some of the gesso came away too, revealing the brown CS underneath = textured distressed look. I chalked/distressed the edges, I curled the corners while the gesso was still soft and left it to dry and harden completely.
fast forward 36 hours .....
I printed out five airmail envelopes, fussy cut them and chalked the edges. They were tied up with a length of string and a little metal heart attached The lettering was created in MS Word, hand cut, with chalked edges.

Here is my ATC for the card challenge. I decided to make a door showing that 'home' could be the wide open spaces of my beautiful country and does not always have to be four walls. I made the door by scoring the cardstock and sweeping an ink pad over it to give the illusion of a wooden door. The door opens to show a photo of a windmill in the Karoo and the rest of the quote: A home is not always four walls, sometimes it is the wide open spaces Hope you like it. No image of a house, spray ink or flowers were harmed in the making of this ATC. More information on my blog tertia-craftinggran.blogspot.com/2014/02/supreme-scrap-tournament-card-challenge.html .

My ATC card is with my favourite window motive. The shape of window I cut out from beermat using penknife, then I covered it structural paste. The bricks wall motive I made using stamp.

Here is my ATC. I hope i did it right. My photo isn't good quality but I hope it's good enough. My Quote is a typical Netherlands saying. It means something as: The sound in/at other places, sounds never the same as at home! I used a mask and adirondack espresso ink and Stazon black. The text is made on my computer. At the back is also a stamp for information about the serie of four atc cards i made
I printed an image of a cat's face on patterned paper and inked the card with "Scattered Straw" and "Evergreen Bough" distress inks. I also distressed the edges of the card. I then mounted the ATC card on brown card-stock. To embellish the ATC card I used a small chipboard fence, inked it with "Scattered Straw" distress ink and chalked with "Creamy Brown " chalk, I then added some metal charms. For the tittle phrase / quote I used alpha- and word stickers. I also wrote "My fury babies" on the card.

This was a HUGE challenge for me using such a TINY card, my very first ATC!!
I used different coloured chalks and blended them to create a "sunset" I embossed the wooden windmill and chipboard birds in black and then glues these onto the background. I then finished it off with my sentiment that includes the word "home" No ink sprays, no flowers, no house shape involved!
