Smeared & Smudged Design Team Throwdown #7

Here we go folks! We're already on our 7th Design Team Throwdown at Smeared and Smudged! 
Our Theme is:


This time around we were to embrace the chunk! 

I created my Chunky ATC from a mix of different materials. Clay, cardboard, paint, mesh, glue and masking tape. This ended up being no where near what I had envisioned, but I don't have the time to redo it, so I hope you like it! The clay was stamped with Smeared Ink rubber from the Morte set, baked, and then painted (multiple times - i just couldn't get the look i was going for). While the paint was drying I created the rest of my ATC out of cardboard....using various colors of acrylic paint. Masking tape and mesh were added for texture. The main clay piece is inside the cardboard and a window is cut out for the reveal....and the die cut fence placed in front... :)

I really hope you all have a chance to stop by the Design Team Throwdown page to check out all of the awesome submissions by our start design teams! These challenges are A LOT of work so show them some love and be sure to stop back by on Sunday to VOTE for your favorite (Voting Starts: Sunday July 28 by noon)!

I also entered this into the challenge at HDH:
