Chunky ATCs

I'm posting this a day early in the hope that you might be able to get hold of a woodblock, given a little extra time.

I have asked Audrey's permission to use her work as this week's inspiration and she kindly agreed. So....... we challenge you to make a 3D ATC using collage, paint, lace, words, embellishments - whatever you like!
The dimensions would ideally be ATC-sized and roughly 1" thick. Although size doesn't really matter...as they say!
Please go and look at Audrey's artwork for inspiration. You may have already seen half of mine on my blog - here's the rest.

I did the back as well...but thats not compulsory! (You don't have to paint a face - but you can if you want!)

Rosie's version will be shown in a few days - so please come back and have a look.
We are really excited to see what you talented people come up with this week.

PS I'd like to thank Margaret Rodgers for the free angel image -

Oh golly - these are wonderful! How inspiring... now where will I find a wood block? Perhaps I should visit the local saw mill??? Or check out the garden? I'm definitely up for this though!

I'm so glad my husband is a woodworker! I'll give him the dimensions and get him on it right away. :) Your examples are absolutely gorgeous!

Hope this is the spot for posting the link to my first two chunky ATCs. Rosie and Linda you certainly know how to get a girl (and guy LOL) going! My husband cut some wood for me and I was until the wee hours playing. I could hardly wait for daylight to take some photos to post. Another brilliant challenge = thank you! oxoxo
