Pretty Drawers


Today I've finished the little drawer unit project I have been working on. 

Here it is

I followed this Scor-Pal Tutorial.  I adapted it slightly to incorporate 8 drawers instead of 4.

I used the Spring Blossoms stamp from Sarah Kay, coloured it using my Copic Markers and distressed around the edge using my Tim Holtz Edge Distresser and some Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters. 

The ticket is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket. I've been after these for ages but everywhere has been sold out, I managed to find some eventually though - hurray!!!

The lace I've used was originally white but this didn't look good with the distressed / vintage look I was after so I coloured it using the Distress Ink, which made it match perfectly.

I'm going to use it for storing all my flat backed pearls and gems - perfect!! 

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Caardvarks - Lacy Days
Creative Card Crew - Vintage / Aged
Simon Says... - It's So Distressing
Cute Card Thursday - So Egg-citing.  Creations with either an Easter theme or containing an oval/egg shape


Stamp: Sarah Kay Spring Blossoms
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Papers & Card: From my stash
Tools: Nesties Large Ovals with Sizzix Big Shot.  Metric Scor-Pal.  Paper Trimmer.  Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
Embellishments: Lace, Flowers and Hat Pin from my stash.  Tim Holtz Adage Ticket.  Tim Holtz Hitch Fasteners

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.
