I used the template which is on Hels blog and cut out my pocket shape from card. I covered it with various papers. On the top flap of the pocket I stamped one of Tim Holtz stamps (Listen to your heart). I then added a glittered butterfly (papermania).
To keep the pocket closed, I used a silver heart shaped clip and I thought this would go nicely with the front sentiment.

I cut a piece of cardstock to measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and then I stamped the Hero Arts Friends stamp using black archival ink. When the ink was dry I set about it with some distress inks and using cut n dry foam I coloured the stamped image.
To add a little depth to the ATC I used some Crystal Lacquers - unfortunately these don't show up too well in the picture.
I covered the front of the clipboard with distress crackle paint and then used a gold krylon pen around the edges.
I took a thin piece of card and covered the top half with some DCWV paper and the bottom half I covered in K & Co paper. I took some chipboard letters and covered them with broken china distress embossing powder and then I triple embossed them using clear UTEE. I took a beer bottle top and squashed it using my wizard and I coloured the inside of it gold using my krylon pen and then added a blue fabric flower. I attached the letters and beer top onto the top half of the clipboard.
For the bottom half I firstly stamped one of my new Tuscan Rose trellis stamps using versamark ink and then put gold embossing powder on and heated it. I took a blue brad and covered it with broken china distress embossing powder and heated it, I then added this to the centre of the stamped flower. I then edged a chipboard piece with gold krylon pen and added a blue dragonfly brad and then attached this to the clipboard.
