Simon Says Stamp and Show an ATC

A first for me, a CHUNKY ATC, one which I thoroughly enjoyed making using Tim's Season's Silhouettes and Odds And Ends set of stamps. The ATC was painted with an undercoat of Claudine Hellmuth's Gesso and a top coat of Distress Stain Broken China. I used all four sides to the max, decorating each with Tim's Reindeer Flight and adding a couple of the special Christmas Adornments from Tim. Noel, Joy and Christmas were added to jump rings, a favourite technique for me at the moment.

 
I stamped the background stamp from Tim's Seasons Silhouettes onto glossy card and embossed with white embossing powder, applying Distress Stain broken china over the top, removing the ink from the embossed areas with a damp piece of kitchen towel.  The reindeers have been cut from Grungepaper and a piece of music paper which was adhered to the top and coloured with Distress Ink vintage photo. On one of the reindeer I have added a piece of packaging which has been embossed with the Snow Flurries Texture Fade.
To the top I have added a snowflake from the Winter Wonderland die, again coloured with Distress Stain broken china.  The ticket from Tim's Odds and Ends set is stamped with Distress Ink broken china.
I have added CHRISTMAS to jump rings, adhered with Glossy Accents along with 25 added to a bottle cap, again adding Glossy Accents to adhere.
I have added one of the wonderful Christmas Adornments to the other side of my ATC, in this case the reindeer.

Pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.
