Chunky ATC exchange

My Monthly ATC group challenged us to make Chunky ATC's this month- we all LOVED the 3-D creativity!

  Our other challenge was to use supplies we already have- nothing new....... and I hate to admit how many supplies I 'opened the package' to make this ATC.
  I used the Hero stamp set by Artistic Outpost to create my ATC. I used Ranger Distress markers for the stamping. The panel on the far Lt used a Distress Glue background. The image was stamped and I fussy cut it out. The grunge stars were painted with Distress inks as well. The pinwheel on the top uses the new SU sizzlet. The 2nd panel uses a (retired) SU sentiment. The third panel uses the AO stamps and a Ranger frame. I used stickers on the far right panel.

 We had an amazing exchange today with some gorgeous Chunky's. For our exchange, we made just one (additional optional) and drew numbers for trading. Here are some of the chunky's traded:
Cindy K made two Chunky's. 

 Diane M. made this Chunky using a Vogue pattern.

 This Chunky was made by Diane S.

 Linda O made four Chunky's- the top two were trades for today- whola- so awesome!!!

  Sandy made this fabulous creation!

 Harriet was busy and made 5 Chunkies- and traded two of them.

 Carol loves Steampunk and made the above Chunky- this was the one I came home with today : )

 Marcie made a multi-season ATC- Christmas, Graduation, Baby and Happy Birthday.

 Mary drilled a circle in the center of her ATC- I LOVE this cool idea!  She was very busy this month- she made all of the ATC's as well- see below........!

Thanks for sharing all of the chunky's. They are delightful. Yours is awesome. I chuckled when you said that you used a lot of supplies. One would have to with a chunky I guess. TFS.
