ATC Inspired by Tim's 2009 Day 5 Tag

This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrates in his 2009 Day 5 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas). I loved how Tim added Stickles to the designs under the fragments.
 I cut out some fairy images and layered and colored dictionary page and some card stock colored with dye inks and gold Perfect Pearls, then stamped with floral images with black Archival Ink. Added stickler to the wings of the fairies and let dry.
 Then adhere fragments to the paper with Glossy Accents and let dry. Then cut paper to shape, smooth edges with sand paper. Used foil flashing tape to create "ornament tops". Cut foil flashing tape into thin stripe and cut edge with decorative scissors. Pierced hole in tops.
 Stamped flourishes on to Manila card with gold acrylic paint and let dry (wash acrylic paint off stamp before it dries).
Used blending tool to apply Distress Inks over entire card. Stamped script with black Archival Ink. Used damp paper towel to lighten inks and remove Distress Ink from acrylic paint. Inked edges with black Archival Ink.
 Added wire to fragments and adhered to card. Cut out gold metallic paper with lace stripe die cut and attached to top and bottom of card.
