Christmas ATC Inspired by Tim's 2007 Day 11 Tag

 I used one of the techniques Tim Holtz showed with his 2007 Day 11 Tag.
Colored a card with shabby shutters Distress Ink then coated with rock candy Distress Crackle Paint and let dry.

When the crackle paint dries, ink surface with vintage photo Distress Ink making sure to push the ink into the cracks, use damp paper towel to wipe Distress Ink off the surface of the crackle paint.
 Made a wreath by stamping greenery images with a variety of green Distress Inks, and berries with festive berries Distress Ink, then covered with rock candy Stickles. Also stamped some holly leaves with peeled paint Distress Ink, then covered with clear embossing powder and heat set. Cut out and colored the edges with vintage photo Distress Ink.
 Attached wreath with foam mounting tape added ribbon and star charm to the wreath. Added key hole charm with brads to atc and cut letters out of black card stock and covered with frosted lace Stickles.
