A Vintage Journey Challenge 13 - ATC's with a Touch of Tim

The latest challenge over at A Vintage Journey is to make an ATC (or two or three!) using a touch of Tim - ie. Tim Holtz Products or inspiration.
I made three ATC's using Tim's Big Top Stamp Set and linked them all together with some Jute and Paper string.  Here are the ATC's from the front.  I mounted each card to a slightly larger black panel laying the strings between the two panels.
I first cut some Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper into the 2.5" x 3.5" size of an ATC.  I dabbed Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean Distress Stains onto my nonstick craft mat, spritzed the colors with water, then dragged my ATC papers through the stains.  I dried them with my heat tool and pressed them into the colors again until I achieved the look I wanted and dried them again.  I sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Picked Raspberry ink.
 and sticky stars
 Here's what the set looks like from the back.
I added Industrious Stickers/Borders that I inked with Archival Cornflower blue ink and Remnant Rubs/Life Quotes.The shapes on the left and center panel are cut with Alterations Artful Dwellings die.


And here is my little ATC set folded up and tied together.  I knotted some round silver buttons from my button box onto the ends of the strings.
And once again -  my 3 ATC's

I'm also entering my ATC project in the Stamplorations Aug 2014 challenge - Stamps and die cuts.
