Another Chunky ATC

The Artistic Outpost referral challenge this month is Spring Punk. After looking up what this was, here's mine :o) I've used a chunky atc and covered it with the recent Kanban POTW Kandi Core card. I really like this, the colours are a bit bright but they emboss and sand beautifully. All stamps are from Artistic Outpost and are from the Steampunk and Paris Exposition sets. Following Tim's February tag I had to get some of the honeycomb paper - the trick really is to follow the lines lol. I've gone round the edges with washi tape to neaten them up a bit. These are some of my 'go to' stamps.  The charms are mainly Tims.

For the top I've used Whitewash card. It's one of those 'had for ages but never used' items that I will be using a lot more of in future. I know my 'balloon's' a bit cheesy, but I like it :o)
I really enjoyed making this, I think I've got the chunky bug!
I'm entering it into the following challenges
Artistic Outpost - Spring Punk
Fashionable Stampers - Bingo. I've gone for the vintage, distressing and metal work line.
The Stampman - Vintage.
Thanks very much for looking x

  10. Love the textured backgrounds. Very interesting. I hadn't heard of Washi tape. Is it a fabric tape. Couldn't tell. I guess I could look it up, huh? lol O.K. Just went to Craft test dummies website. It seems I have lead a sheltered life. lol I will have to either order some or travel up to the big city to find them. lol
