ATC Inspired by Tim's 2010 Day 3 Tag

This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrated on his 2010 Day 3 tag (12 Tags of Christmas). I love the tissue tape collage.
 Randomly apply tissue tape to grunge paper.
Cut out butterfly with die cut, then color with alcohol inks.
When ink is dry, cover with rock candy Distress stickles.
 I got impatient and used the heat tool to dry the stickler, this caused the tissue tape to buckle. Color edges with walnut stain Distress Ink.
On card, stamped branch with black Archival Ink. Used blending tool to add green Distress Inks to card and walnut stain Distress Ink to edges. Then splatter water on card, waited about a minute used a heat tool to stop ink from spreading.
Roughed up edges of card with distress tool and inked edges with bundle sage Distress Ink.
Colored blossoms with pink Distress Ink. Stamped on speckles with white acrylic paint (wash acrylic paint off stamp right away).
Added tissue tape collage butterfly to ATC and a word sticker.
