ATC based on Tim's May Tag of 2013

Love the May 2013 Tag from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 series. See his blog here for how he created it, lots of lovely step by step photos. I've used some different products from what Tim shows, as I'm using what's in my craft room.
Choose some words from rub-on sets I had and rubbed them on a piece of manila card stock.
 Pressed three colors of Distress Stains on to a craft sheet, pulled the atc through the stains to pick up the colors, spritzed with water to help the colors spread.
 The used heat tool to start to dry the stains, stopped to splatter on some water to move the stains around a bit more, then finished drying with the heat tool. Used paper towel to rub the wet stain off the rub-ons. Fun resist technique!
 Used blending tool to color the edges of the atc with Distress Inks.
 Stamped various images with black Archival Ink. Used paper towel to rub the ink off of the rub-ons.
 Colored the center of a metal tag with raspberry alcohol ink, added some blending solution to lighten the color. Later I added some rub-on words to this tag.
 Adhered the metal tag to the atc with a red heart brad. Also added some film strip ribbon to the bottom of the atc.
I like this rub-on resist technique. Will keep my eyes open for more rub-ons!
