Here we are again for HDH172 over at HAUNTED DESIGN HOUSE. This time our Theme is Chunky ATCs....
Don't freak out. It's not as intimidating as you may think.
Basically, a chunky ATC consists of a dimensional ATC,
measuring 3.5" x 2.5" x 1.5". Usually it is cut from a plank of
wood, but it can also be a bunch of ATCs glued together to achieve the
1.5" depth. You can also create a hollow box (see template below),
as long as it measures properly.
You can have all kinds of dimension and embellishments, as long as they
are all attached to the original 2.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" block/box.
Now I decided to go completely out on a limb with this one and use Acetate. !!! My measurements are the same but 4 out of the 6 sides are thick acetate and the other 2 sides are cardboard. I used some stripped corrugated card for the back and inked it up with red and black and stamped on some crinkles.
On the front is a ribcage from Smeared Ink's Anatomy 101 Set. Inside, there is a heart :-D I printed it out 12 times and then fussy cut it into 6 layers each side and sandwiched the sides together so it made it 3D. Then I coloured it and dipped it into my melting pot. The little 'drips' of blood were drippings from my hot glue gun and I coloured them red with Copics. The 'blodd' on the floor below is melted red sealing wax. The heart is suspended on very fine fishing line so that it doesn't show and the heart rotates inside....... it also makes a really cool knocking sound like a heart beat when you move the box a little :-D bwaahahahaha !!!

Are you sure there isn't a real heart in there, lol... there are no words, my god it is unreal... I mean sooooooooooo real.. I love the idea of coloring your glue with copics, brill girl!! and I will never know how you created that by printing all the pictures out and making it 3D, I would so love to be your neighbour for 11 months of the year.......no way , not a chance I would live near you or go see you on Halloween......hehe!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big hugsReplyDelete
I would move there too!!! Can you imagine the fun we would have!!!! At least you and I? Ike would be tired of us lolDelete
Okay, so if I join in, that will be three Canadians bombarding in on Ike. Oh my gosh what a blast. Okay, if any of us wins a million dollars we have to promise each other that we'll all go to Greece and visit Ike together--whether she wants us or not!Delete
Jawdroppingly AWESOME hun!!! xxReplyDelete
Stunning realness! I also can't figure out how you made the heart 3D, but let's just say "you're magic", for the sake of argument, shall we? Honored to have you representing HDH this time around. Best of luck!ReplyDelete
ohhhhh my god this is totally out of this world fabulous! I would never ever be able to create something that phenomenal. Just jaw dropping... still have to pick it up and it's pretty gross the floor here at camping lol so if I have caught some bugs it's your fault!ReplyDelete
I'm with Glo! I can't believe how fabulously REAL that heart turned out. Way cool that it is suspended, too. So totally awesome I can bearly stand it. So happy to have you playing for the Minions this time, Ike! xxDReplyDelete
Wow! You put such a lot of work into it - and it payed off so very well. It's a stunner!! So adorable ... I don't know if I dare to join in with so many masterpieces from the minions ... Mindblowing work! Hugs, Suzanne xxxReplyDelete
This is so clever! The heart is chillingly realistic! Love that you've put so much time into it and created something really unique - a real miniature work of art.ReplyDelete

I totally love your CATC!!!! I think this should be a winner all on it's own! You are just so cleaver! Brilliant piece of art!ReplyDelete
Can you believe I put that 1st comment together at 3:30 pm and it is 1:30 am and I FINALLY published it. I'm a bit all over the place today. Once again you stretch and grow and create such a masterpiece. I can't get over the fact that heart is made from layers of paper that you've moulded into a 3D object. You have really outdone yourself with this one.ReplyDelete
I don't believe you that heart is real! You crazy psycho hahaha. This is just the bees knees. Seriously one top badda$$ project you have there. xxxReplyDelete
okay, that's crazy!! I am straining my eyes through my glasses to see the layers of that heart and WOW, completely unbelievable! If you hadn't of said anything, I would have sworn it was the Tell Tale Heart suspended right there!ReplyDelete
This project is CRAZY AWESOME!! Amazing work with the layering and the acetate. Hands down, incredible!
