Grungy Monday #35 - ATC

The challenge at Grungy Monday this week is to make a Tim Holtz inspired ATC.  There is so much going on over in Tim's world at the moment, there's more inspiration than I can cope with!
I've gone back to basic techniques for my ATC, using a Texture Fades embossing folder on grey card, rubbing back and then inking with Gathered Twigs, which has given a bit of a rusty metallic look.  The Melody Ross heart has a coating of Barn Door Distress Ink and then Stampers Anonymous birds on it, finished off with a coating of Rock Candy Distress Stickles and a little black ink.
There's an Adage Ticket, Tissue Tape and an Amy Tangerine chipboard letter given a pink Copic coating.  But, does it say 'Love U' or 'Love Chocolate'?

Your little birds on your ATC card is the perfect touch. I love how you've combined all these different elements on your card. I think it says Love U but of course we all know we really love Chocolate so maybe it's asubliminal message. Either way it's adorable.
