There were a couple of challenges I wanted to enter, so I've altered one of those little drawer units you buy in the stationery section of Wilkinsons for a couple of quid, which I've had for a while. The inspiration for this came from The Artistic Stamper blog a few months ago, when they altered one of these - Tissue Tape Your Drawers by Kat Fullman - however, I did the unit instead of the drawers:
|Side View - both sides the same|
I coloured a Tando bookplate in Victorian Velvet distress stain, then a couple of coats of clear Distress Stickles over this, stamped a sentiment onto paper coloured with Victorian Velvet DI, a couple of white velvet brads, and adhered to the front of the box.
I'm going to enter this into the Grungy Monday challenge over at Studio L3, as their theme is Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap and Tape,although I'm not sure if I will qualify for their prize over at Simon Says Stamp, as I don't think I've used one of Tim's techniques as such.
The Artistic Stamper's new challenge is Vintage so I hope it fits into that one as well, and also the Sunday Stamper, whose theme is Do Anythin You Wanna Do.
I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet, but I've just bought some lovely pink, black and white hat boxes for storage so it should co-ordinate nicely with them.
I hope you like it.
