Chunky ATC Swap

If you have been hanging around for a while you know that I am a HUGE fan of Viva Las VegaStamps!  They have LOTS of awesome red rubber stamps and a fantastic community where there are always swaps going on.  This one was a chunky ATC swap.  Now I have never made a 'chunky' ATC...I have made plenty of regular ATC's so I had to do a bit of research.
Lot's of these type ATC's are made on a block of wood.  I had a fun idea to use the book pages I just removed from an old book to create a journal for another swap I am working on.

I cut the book pages at the binding down to the size of an ATC, 2-1/2 x 31/2 inches.  It is attached in a chip board cover that is covered in 7 Dots Studios Nature Walk.
I used 41 stamps on this ATC.  Where are they you ask??  Well this is a mini version of an art journal so they are mostly inside on the pages.
There are 15 spreads and I didn't want this post to be picture heavy so I made a collage of all the pages.

I also used May Arts ribbon, UmWow Studio chip, Color Shine, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Distress ink, Distress Markers, watercolor pen, Archival ink, Prima bark flower and raindrop mask, Tiny attacher, Stickles.
Stamps used:  dictionary page, businessman silhouette, not all who wander, chevron banner, bird in flight, stars, boy in cape, whimsical cloud, triangle banner, whimsical cloud, toy airplane, party hat, road trip, teeny tiny on bike, you are here, geo tag small, geo tag large, whimsical diver, tag, caterpillar, bottle with top, blowing dandelion with extra seed, make a wish, fly, tape measure, butterfly spotted wing/small, man and woman symbol, striped border arrow, {with love}sm;)e, girl with umbrella, in the pale moonlight, moon circle, snail, fairy, whimsical candy, whimsical round lollipop, admit one ticket, coffee ring stain, Victorian ornamental flourish, pure imagination

And some close ups of a couple of my favorite pages.

I am so excited about how this worked out so I think I will have to make another for myself to keep.  :)
