Loved Drawer Unit

Well hello and welcome! Thank you for dropping by.

Today I am sharing with you a little set of drawers I made from cardboard. I took measurements from a large matchbox, made 4 'matchboxes' and then measured all 4 to get the dimensions for the outside of the chest. I've always loved constructing things (and I did technical drawing at school!) so I did have fun making, but there are lots of blogs about that have all the info on construction.

What I've done to the drawers, once built, is covered using the new IndigoBlu 6x6 papers. I used the Fontastic Ephemera set, and used a few sheets in making this.

The image on the easel card, which I wanted to made look like a mirror or picture, is from the new IndigoBlu stamps - this is Caitlin, she is beautiful! and the sentiment "REMEMBER YOU ARE LOVED" is from the Becca stamp set.

I've distressed all the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, I coloured in 'Caitlin' with Distress Inks too. Gives such a gentle,vintage feel. I topped this onto some kraftcard, which I edged with IndigoBlu Flitterglu, and stamped with Flitterglu, and I added IndigoBlu Mega Flake 'Chocolate Box'. The stamp I used for this was one of the new stamps from IndigoBlu called "Tattoo Heart" - in this you can only see the edges.

I ripped out a few pieces of the paper, created the heart from UTEE, and used IndigoBlu Flitterglu and Mega Flake to it. The little pendent is made using a small piece of paper cut from the cover of the pad, which I stuck down and sealed with IndigoBlu Slap It On, then used Ice Resin. I love the fact that you can see the image in the pendent that is also in the 'newspaper advert', I hope it looks like a dressing table, with bits and bobs laying on the dresser.

Thank you for visiting!
