ATC Inspired by Tim's 2008 Day 10 Tag

This ATC was made using some of the techniques shown by Tim Holtz in his 2008 Day 10 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas). 
Start by placing mask on to Manila card (my mask has lost some of its stickiness, so doesn't leave a clean image). Make a spray with Distress re-inker and gold perfect pearls. Use paper towel to blot up extra spray, remove mask and heat set.
 Use blending tool to add Distress ink.
 Splatter with water, let sit for 10 seconds or more, then heat set.
 Stamp image with embossing ink on grunge paper, cover with black embossing powder and cut out.
 Make a paint out of water and perfect pearls, paint over embossed grunge paper, blot off excess perfect pearls (the embossing powder will act as a resist).
 Stamped image on background with black Archival ink. Adhered measuring tape ribbon to side. Cut out letters on vellum, layered over distressed gesso background, inked edges with walnut stain Distress ink.
 Added grunge paper image and a metal gear with clock bit.
