I made an atc based on some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrates in his 12 Tags of 2013 Janurary post. Ran a piece on manila folder in an embossing folder and used a blending tool to add various Distress inks, splattered with water drops then heat set. Colored edges with walnut stain Distress ink.
Used a die cut and grungepaper for the key and heart shapes. Colored with metallic Distress Stains.
Used sandpaper over the key shape and colored some parts with iced spruce Distress ink. Made markings on the heart shapes and colored some parts with vintage photo Distress ink.
The markings on the hearts didn't show up well, so I drew over them with a black sharpie and pounded them with the texture hammer.
To finish the atc, added film strip ribbon with vintage images behind them. Stamped a saying with black Archival ink on another piece of manilla folder, roughed up the edges with a distressing tool and colored with walnut stain Distress Ink. Added gear bits to the grungepaper hearts. Added the hearts and key to the atc. I like how this turned out.
