ATC Inspired by Tim's 2010 Day 4 Tag

This ATC uses some of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrated in his 2010 day 4 tag (12 Tags of Christmas). 
Cover the bottom of a facet with alcohol ink. I tried applying the ink with felt pad, but it left little fibers over the surface, so I just poured the alcohol ink on the surface.
 Stamped butterfly with black Archival Ink on alcohol ink side off facet.
 While ink is still wet, blot with dry clean towel to remove ink and the underlying alcohol ink.
 Use Glossy Accents around outer edge and apply to white card stock. When dry, trim off excess paper.
 For back, use a piece of decorative scrapbook paper. colored the edges with purple Distress Inks. Covered fairy wings with rock candy Distress Stickles.
 Added decorative "pearls" to background, Added decorative beads to the facet and a ribbon.
