Christmas ATCs

I want to send out some Christmas ATCs to some friends. Decided to use some of the backgrounds I've made in the various Book Studies we've done on the NGS group. I bit non traditional, but lots of fun.
This background is from the Inky Layers technique. Added a vintage angel image, a small brass star and black rub-on letters to spell hope.
This was the other Inky Layers background I made like above, but with other colors. Stamped Merry Christmas with black StazOn ink, added vintage angels image and black glittery musical notes.
This background was one of the Paint on Paper Towel technique samples. Added a vintage angel image, metallic edged ribbon and brass star and a dictionary definition of adoration.
This background is one of the watercolor plastic wrap backgrounds I made. Added vintage angels image, large black glitter notes and a dictionary definition of sing. Layered all onto black glittery card stock.
This background is the Lapis Lazuli technique. It makes a wonderful heavenly sky. Added a calendar tissue tape, vintage angel image with house, and colored the edges with a gold leafing pen.
This background was on of the Intuitive Watercolor technique backgrounds. Added a couple of vintage angel images, a rhinestone star, and an arch frame, that I had inked with gold Colorbox ink and stamped on musical sheet with black StazOn ink.
The background paper is from the Leafing Pen Resist technique. Added a large snowflake rub-on with a small rhinestone, vintage angel image, dictionary definition, and overlaid an arch frame that had musical sheet stamped on with silver Encore! ink.
The background was from the second stencil background I made. Painted some dictionary pages, tear and layered over an arch frame. Added a vintage angel image, gold star brad and a dictionary definition of adore:
This was a very fun way to use some of my backgrounds.

I wish I had an arch die, I wonder if anyone makes one??? One of the Aussies sent me these frames in lieu of postage for a swap I hosted a while back. Wish I had lots more, they are so fun to use.
