Mixed Media Chunky ATC

Anything goes for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week. Well, just because we're still waiting for summer, my used colour - combination maybe will lift your spirit a little bit (:o)



Just in case you want to create a chunky atc too, here's the making of....

A wooden block 2.5" x 3.5" by 1.5"

I applyed Ranger Sticky Back Canvas to all sides

 Glued on dry embossed cardboard, gears, magic mesh...

Used  modelling paste with stencil...

..and a lot more different kind of embellishments glued on top with a hotglue gun to all sides...

...even on top

Applied two or three layers of Gesso

The base colours, used with a mini mister - mixed with water - started with the lightest colour


More colours for depth and shine


And some embossing powders


More close up's






I hope you feel inspired and let me know, if you try this technique.
This chunky atc will be a special give away. I'll announce the winner on Friday 19th this month. Just leave a message with your comment if you're interested and i'll put your name in my hat. 
Thanks for reading and leaving your always appreciated comments
xoxo
