Day 2 Tim Inspired Christmas ATC

 This atc uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz uses in his Day 2 Tag.
Cut out a piece of Kraft Resist paper and glue to thin cardboard. Coat with picket fence Distress Stain and blot off the excess, let dry so the stain soaks into the paper.
Tim used a Christmas themed Kraft Resist paper, which I don't have. To simulate that look, I stamped a seasonal saying along the right side and a small holly image in the upper left corner with vintage photo Distress Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
 Colored the holy with peeled paint, evergreen bough and festive berries Distress Inks. Colored the edges with iced spruce Distress Ink.
 Tim splattered  Perfect Pearls Mist over the background. I made up a mist with Perfect Pearls and water in a mini mister. So this would be splattered instead of misted I used the end of the spray tube to pick up the liquid and flicked it on to the background. Tim says to heat set this right away and not let the liquid soak into the paper.
 Made the bottom border out of grunge paper, painted it with gold acrylic paint, once the paint dried, sanded the edges and inked it with vintage photo Distress Ink and added mini copper brads. Colored the edges of the atc with vintage photo Distress Ink. Stamped an ornament image with dark cherry StazOn ink onto canvas paper, cut it out and frayed the edges. Added a gold ribbon to the top of the ornament with a copper brad.
