Christmas ATC Inspired by Tim's Day 12 Tag

 I used a couple of the techniques on this ATC that Tim Holtz showed on his Day 12 Tag.
Stamped some script on card with black Archival Ink and let dry. The cover with picket fence Distress Stain, allow to soak in, then heat set with a heat tool.
Covered card with matte gel, then lay down a piece of tissue wrap slightly larger than the card. While laying it down wrinkle it up to create folds and interesting texture.
 Use craft iron to flatten down the tissue wrap. Roughen the edges with a distress tool. Coat entire surface with a thin layer of rock candy Stickles and allow to dry.
 Cut piece of grunge paper into house shape, paint with light blue acrylic paint (I used Lumiere), allow to dry. Sand edges and color with walnut stain Distress ink. Coat entire surface with rock candy Stickles and allow to dry.
 Color edges of house with white acrylic paint and rub finger over to give distress look.
 Had a bit of copper colored German scrap, so colored parts of a  snowflake metal brad with a copper pen, along with parts of angel image and along the edges of the ATC.
 Adhered house to ATC, added angel image along with some words from a dictionary. Also added some music text to the ATC.
I've had fun, listening to Christmas music, following Tim's blog and being inspired to create these Christmas ATCs. They will go into a book for reference through out the year, so many techniques!
