Artist Trading Post are having an exchange challenge in the form of an ATC inspired by Trading Post.
This is my effort:

The background was bundled sage and vintage photo distress inks blended and sprayed with tattered angels gold mist.  Then I stamped my Hero Arts "Art" text background with Archival Sepia ink. The sentiment (Just-Rite) was stamped on tissue paper then embellished with red and white pens.  I stamped scissors, buttons, spools and pencils from the same set in Archival black ink.  I spattered some vintaj fragments - aged embossing powder and gold flakes, then heat embossed.
I topped it with mdf crayon, paintbrush and splatter, coloured with alcohol pens and inked the edges with black soot distress ink.
It must be at least 3 years since I made an ATC and I think I'll be doing some more because I thoroughly enjoyed myself - there's something really therapeutic about taking a theme and throwing all kinds of things at it to create a small piece really quickly.
