ATC based on Tim's April Tag of 2013

I have a few of the new Distress Paints, and decided to try the Patina effect with Distress paints that Tim Holtz shows in his April Tag in the 12 Tags of 2013 series. Make sure to check out his blog post with the wonderful step by step photos. I placed a couple colors of Distress paint and a metallic Distress paint on a craft sheet and spritzed with water.
 Dragged some manilla folders pieces through the Distress paint and then spritzed with water and then heat set.
 These are the two backgrounds I made:
 Next, used a blending tool to add some more colors with Distress Ink, spritzed with water, stood up to allow the wet ink to run down and then heat set.
 Here's how it turned out:
 Stamped dragonfly stamp with black archival ink. Distressed the edges of the ATC and colored with walnut stain Distress ink and heat set the inks.
 Stamped the same dragonfly image on a piece of plastic sheet, cut out the wings and stapled on with blue staples. Added some washi tape.
 Colored some metal embellishments with Distress paint and before it completely dried, wiped off some of the paint to reveal the metal underneath. Colored a cardboard "Y" with Distress paints.
