ATC Inspired by Tim's 2010 Day 7 Tag

This ATC uses several of the techniques Tim Holtz demonstrates in his 2010 Day 7 tag (12 Tags of Christmas).
Color one side wood embossing folder, run through machine with Manila card inside. I love how the ink is pressed into the debased areas.
 Colored raised areas with darker brown and forest moss Distress inks. Heat set or let dry thoroughly.
 Color canvas sheets. For the flower I used red & yellow color wash spray and a home made yellow spray and gold perfect pearls. Let dry.
 For the leaves, colored canvas sheet with green color washes, a home made green spray and green perfect pearls. Let dry.
 Adhered canvas to grunge paper and cut out flower shapes and leaves with die cut machine. Colored edges with darker shades of Distress Inks.
 Coat wood grain ATC surface with rock candy Distress Stickles. Shape petals and leave, then used rock candy Distress Stickles on one edge of flower petals and both edges of the leaves. Let dry.
 Used glue gun to glue broad side of petals down and the leaves. Used large decorative brad as flower center.
 Colored grunge board letters with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Stamped music sheet with black Archival Ink over the letters.
 Adhered letters to the ATC. Love all the fabulous textures on this ATC!
