Inspired by two brilliant challenges this week, I created my first wood block ATCs, they measure 2.5″ x 3.5″ and are .75″ (1.9 centimeters) thick. They feel like a good sized deck of cards in your hand; fun to pick up and admire and addicting to make 🙂

My first chunky ATC is for the Mittwochstempler/Wednesday Stamper (WS): Angel theme. For my “GROW” gardening Angel, I used three different stamps. The block of wood that my husband cut for me is covered with very small print book text that I inked and stamped on, adding images and other papers. Since I am mostly inside these days playing with paper, I could certainly use a gardening angel!
My second chunky ATC is for the Big Art Adventure challenge of creating a wooden ATC this week. I call this one “Rules 4 Giving”, which is what it says on one side. I also covered this wooden block with book text, inked and added images; applying inks again and again layering with paper.
Thanks to Linda and Rosie’s Big Art Adventure and Audrey Hernandez for the inspiration! These are great fun to make and they stand up nicely on a shelf or cabinet!
Great fun! I have two painted and ready to play with today! I think I will need to try an even chunkier size too….if you please JJJ oxooxo
