ATC Inspired by Tim's 2009 Day 7 Tag

This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrates on his 2009 Day 7 Tag (12 Tags of Christmas).
Choose a main image and stamp it on a mask sheet with StazOn ink and cut out. Stamp same image on Manila card with black Archival Ink and let dry.
Cover stamped image with the mask, then stamp flourishes with white acrylic paint. Remove mask and wipe acrylic paint off of mask.
 Use blending tool to add Distress Inks around main image.
 Replace mask and use blending tool to add darker shades of the Distress Inks used above.
 Use black Distress Ink to stamp images over card while the mask is still in place.
 Remove mask, use damp paper towel to wipe inks off the acrylic paint. Stamp word on to background with embossing ink, cover with gold embossing powder (ep) and heat set. The gold ep didn't show up on the light ink, so I used the blending tool to apply darker shades of Distress Ink.
 Used Distress Stickles to make a flower in the hair.
 Colored edge of card with gold acrylic paint and added a gold crown charm.
