This is the first Chunky ATC I've made... it's for a swap on the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group and is making it's way to Mary. I really enjoyed making it!!!!
If you are not sure what a Chunky ATC is... you start with a piece of 2x4 wood cut to a length of 2 1/2". A 2 x 4 is actually only 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" so when you cut the length you, you have a piece of wood that is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" thick... very cool.
I first painted the chunky with Distress Crackle Paint tattered rose and let it dry. I then used espresso Paint Dabber.. working in small sections I rubbed it on getting into the cracks and then wiped the extra off with a damp towel... leaving the cracks a dark brown and tinting the crackle paint a very nice old look. All stamping and die cutting was done on either grungepaper or board.
