ATC Inspired by Tim's 2010 Day 6 Tag

This ATC uses one of the technique's Tim Holtz demonstrates in his 2010 Day 6 tag (12 Tags of Christmas).
On the side of the embossing folder with the image depressed, stamp on flourishes with Distress ink, then place paper in embossing folder and emboss as usual.
 The stamped images remain in the background area, non on the raised areas.
 Used blending tool color raised areas with Distress Inks.
 Colored edges with vintage photo Distress Ink. Then used distress tool to roughen up edges, then colored with gathered twigs Distress Ink.
 Stamp on speckled image with gold acrylic paint around edges, let dry (wash acrylic paint off rubber stamp before it dries).
 Stamped saying with seed preserves Distress ink. Added dictionary page words over same in saying. Added fairy image and metal heart charm.
