ATC Inspired by Tim's 2009 Day 8 Tag

This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrated on his 2009 Day 8 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas). I did play with this faux parchment paper two years ago

Stamp music score on vellum with black Archival Ink and heat set.
 Use blending tool to add old paper Distress Ink to vellum. Then with good ventilation, heat with heat tool until the ink is baked into the vellum. The ink will smoke as it's heated. Let vellum cool.
 Tear edges and color with walnut stain Distress Ink.
 Use blending tool to add antique linen and brushed corduroy Distress ink. Splatter with water, let sit for 10 seconds then heat set.
 Use distress tool to roughen edges and color with walnut stain Distress ink. Tim recommends roughening up the background with a scratcher tool (I used an exacto knife instead).
Stamp on flourish with aged mahogany Distress Ink.
 Curl the edges of vellum by rolling them back. Adhere vellum with glue stick. I added an angel image and a metal moon charm with a tiny star brad.
