ATC Inspired by Tim's 2010 Day 9 Tag

This ATC uses a couple of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrated on his 2010 Day 9 tag (12 Tags of Christmas). This was my first time to use the rosette die I got over Christmas. Unfortunately, the video portion of this tag was missing when I went to try these techniques. So I went by the instructions on the packaging.
Pressed wild honey and brushed corduroy Distress Inks into a craft sheet, then sprayed with a home made yellow spray with gold perfect pearls added. Swipe Manila card through the inks.
 The background was too yellow (because of my spray) so I pressed some walnut stain Distress Ink into the craft sheet and sprayed with the same yellow & gold perfect pearls spray and re swiped the card through this ink. Like how it looks now, heat set.
 Choose a long strip of Tim's decorative paper, used a yellow and a brown home made spray with gold perfect pearls in them to coat the paper. Heat set. Then cut out with the mini rosette dies. The small rosette cut out the number side and the medium rosette cut out the floral side (I'm using the medium rosette).
 While the rosette is folded, inked the folded edges and the tops with walnut stain Distress Ink.
 Colored the edges of the center piece with the walnut stain Distress Ink and adhered the rosette per package instructions.
Used a distress tool to roughen the edges of the card and colored with walnut stain Distress Ink. Added brass brads to the bottom of the ATC and used the texture hammer to distress the brads.
 Added a girl's face image to the center of the rosette, and metal filigrees under the center of the rosette. Cut out letters from textured black paper and covered with Glossy Accents and let dry.
