Charmed Heart ATC

When coming up with an idea for a Gingersnap Creations Blog challenge for charms, well I could not resist this perfect charmed metal heart as the focus for this ATC. Making these little works of art that express your mood are immediately satisfiying, it is no wonder they have been so popular.  Reproduction feed sack fabrics are rightfully getting a lot of attention these days.  Their little patterns make the perfect background for ATC's (which are approximately the size of a playing card and ideal for swapping with fellow artisans) as well as quilt projects.  This ATC has a background of a sweet sky blue feed sack fabric, a small golden gingham check fabric and the well-loved ric rac woven trim.  I brushed red acrylic paint around the edges and then adhered the endearing puffed metal heart with a few words of printed text to declare my love for creating with fabrics and paper. I  added a red gingham ribbon tied off at the top of the charm which easily announces Royal Americana.
