A Chunky ATC..

I have something fun and different to show
you.. Well at least it's different for me.
It's a chunky ATC.  I had seen these on a couple of
other blogs and fell in love with them. So I have been saying
forever that I wanted to try one.




I started off with a sketch and then painted her
with Watercolors..  I had every intention of taking photos
of my process.  But got so caught up in the process that all
I got was a photo of the sketch.




So here she is all painted up and pretty.

A chunky ATC is a block of wood that is the same
size as a playing card.  Only a lot thicker.



I really enjoy every step of creating this
Little cutie..  I can't wait to try another.




I had fun using the crackle paint on the
block of wood.  I just love the look it gives.




After I was done painting my face.
I cut her out and used mod podge to
glue her down to the block. I have to say I just
love that mod podge.




And then used all kinds of embellishments
to make her all pretty.




I just wanted to give a shout out to a  couple of talented
gals who gave me the inspiration to create my chunky ATC.
Thanks so much Jan and Lynn!

chunky ATCs - I love it!! This is just so cute - I could imagine any little girl wanting these to adorn their bedrooms. I agree with you about crackle glaze, I love it too. Can I ask is the WISH on the back a stamper or did you hand write it? I love it!
