Playing with distress stuff

Here's a card I made for the OCC Chemistry 102 class by Tim Holtz. Maybe I should have used 'Bah Humbug' as the title for this post. This crazy bird cracks me up.

I have been playing with distress paints, stains, inks, layering stencils and stamps. I also mixed in a few tips and tricks from the OCC Heat wave class and then added a little gold embossing paste through yet another stencil for some festive shimmer and shine. Not my usual style or colours but fun to make.
