Today sees the start of our new challenge over at ATCs WITH ATTITUDE.
This is our second challenge and the theme is ANYTHING GOES. There is a prize up for grabs though from the lovely Floppy Latte. The winner will receive a voucher from her shop.

I thought I would make a very simple ATC in order to encourage you all to take part showing you just how easy making these little works of art can be.
This is what I did:

'I used a brush to paint Studio acrylic paint - classic teal - on to black card stock. The rough painting leaves streaks which is the required result. The birds have been stamped using black Archival ink. The flower was made from a medium size 5-petal stamp and Tim Holtz paper stash, lost and found, cut out several times to form the flower. The leaves were punched from the same papers with a Martha Stewart punch. I then glued a couple of metal corners to the card and stamped the following words:

'imagine a journey of creative stuff, ideas and things to discover'

on some scrap card coloured with distress ink. The whole card was then spritzed with heirloom gold perfect pearls.

and this is how it turned out:

You don't even have to make your own flower. Use an already made one, or simply stick a picture on.
