Can't seem to get into the spirit of Christmas yet - but did create 5 Christmas ATCs. I used 7 Dots Studio Yuletide paper. I selected the papers and ripped some to use as layers. My first step, however, was to gesso the background and then I used a stencil on each of the cards for texture and another layer. After that I stamped with a small text stamp on different parts of the pages. Next I splattered the background with red ink and added the paper ripped Yuletide paper layers and inked the edges with black ink. I different pieces of chippies and sprayed them with red ink and glued them down. Finally, I added some TH Christmas ephemera pieces, twine, flowers, metal adornments and some glossy little 1/2 beads. Last, but certainly not least - I added Finnabair Red Ruby glass beads and Finnabair silver glitter.
