Always Fly Home ATC - Dusty Attic

At Dusty we are having ATC Challenges... just for those who like to create these little works of art, without having to create a whole pile of them!

The Dusty Design Team will be creating an ATC for inspiration each month.

The theme for June is Birds/Flight and here is my sample...

Isn't that iddy bird on her nest with those iddy eggs the sweetest thing!!

I have added a little swing tag to my ATC so I can hang them next to my desk, not quite the 'standard'... but this way I can see it everyday!

I have used the new Bird Nests #1 and Mini Birds #1... they are SO cute!

I tied a cute little bow from a strip of wide weave muslin...

The bird, nest and eggs were all painted white and then coloured with Smooch Accent Inks, they are perfect for these mini chippies.  The eggs and bird were then also touched with Smooch Glitz... their new ink that has glitter in it!  It's perfect to add just a delicate touch of glitter in just the right spot.

You can find details of how to play along and enter HERE

Thanks for visiting, take care and be true to you!
