Christmas ATC Inspired by Tim's 2007 Day 2 Tag

 This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holz used in his 2007 Day 2 Tag.
Stamped snowflakes onto card with white acrylic paint, immediately coat with clear embossing powder and heat set.
 Press assorted blue colored Distress Inks onto a craft sheet and mist with water, lay card down into ink press but don't swirl. Heat set. 
 Repeat pressing the card back into the above inks, heat setting after each time. Drying after each time creates depth.
 Tim used a snowman stamp with lots of dark background. I choose this winter village scene. Stamped with black Distress ink and heat set.
 Doesn't show well in the photo, colored over the black night sky with rock candy Stickles and over the snowy roofs of the buildings with frosted lace Stickles and let dry.
 Tim used snowflake "ghost shapes" (I'm not sure what those are) so I cut snowflakes with the snowflake on the edge die out of packaging plastic and colored it with white acrylic paint. Adhered to the card and added rhinestones and stamped the words with midnight blue StazOn ink.
