This is my ATC for this week's TMTA. The theme is staples. - some staples must be included somewhere on the ATC. I enjoyed this challenge as I've never used staples on an ATC before.
I created the background for this one using gesso and distress inks and stamped some text onto it. I layered on some text from a book page and some mesh (also coloured with distress inks), then stapled down the side. I distressed the staples, the brad and the metal heart using distress embossing powder and a Sharpie Pen to create the illusion of rust, then added the various elements.
(Sorry for the poor quality picture. I've scanned it so it's a bit blurry in places. I'll try and get a better one tomorrow when I've had time to read the instructions for my new camera!)
