This atc uses one of the techniques Tim Holtz uses in his Day 3 tag. And that is making a custom multi colored ink pad out of cut n dry felt (this can also be used to make your blending pads). I found a Christmas saying stamp that I used frequently, so it was worth making a custom ink pad for it. Stamped the image with black Archival Ink,on to white card stock and let dry. Then used Distress Ink re-inkers to color the pad. For this ATC, I only stamped the bottom half. The custom ink pad is now in a ziplock plastic bag for a later use.
I didn't want to cover up any of the words , so I added a little bling where I could with these red and green rhinestones.
