This ATC was made using some of the techniques shown by Tim Holtz in his 2008 Day 10 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas).
Start by placing mask on to Manila card (my mask has lost some of its stickiness, so doesn't leave a clean image). Make a spray with Distress re-inker and gold perfect pearls. Use paper towel to blot up extra spray, remove mask and heat set.
