Steampunk Chunky ATC
Have you tried a Chunky ATC yet? I had played around with one ages ago, but ended up abandoning it because I could never figure out what to do with all the different sides. When I got the new Steampunk stamps, I pulled it back out and everything just fell into place!
All you need is a 2 x 4 piece of lumber that is cut to 2 1/2". First, I sanded it a bit and then covered it with vintage papers to give myself a base to work on.
Next, I added lots of stamped images and various clock gears and other Steampunk-inspired bits. I also stamped directly onto the block. A bit of sanding around the edges and lots of Brushed Corduroy Distress ink, and you're done!
