Christmas Surprise

most of us always thinks that a Christmas card should not have a grunge look... but check this card... i was inspired by Tim Holtz 12 tags for Christmas. i created this card using his very unique distress inks and masks. first i used Tim's Masks to word out "Merry Christmas" then i inked the card... then splattered the whole thing with water. then using the making memories scraper i distressed the edges. (make sure the water has evaporated from the card... if you are impatient like i am.. best method is to use a soft tissue and then heat dry using a heat tool) embellished with a ribbon and some silver snowflakes.

Things I used:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks (tea dye, vintage photo, fired brick & peeled paint. 
Scrapper from Making memories
Green Transparent Ribbon
Fabric Snowflake (silver)
