I had so much fun following along with Tim Holtz's 12 Days of Christmas this year, I'm going back to try the techniques and products from the other years. I'm starting at the beginning 2007 Tag 1. I won't get them all done this season, but will do what I can get to.
Tim used old paper and fired brick Distress Crackle Paints. I don't have those colors, so I improvised and it seem to work. Painted a grunge board "S" with red pepper acrylic paint and when it dried coated it with fired brick Distress ink, let dry, the painted on a thick layer of rock candy Distress Crackle paint and let it dry. Colored part of a card with old paper Distress Ink, heat set, then painted on a thick layer of rock candy Distress Crackle paint and let it dry.
