This little project is for the Alter It Monthly challenge which is Drawers, Doors & Secret Compartments. I was going to make a completely different project, but my little shrine and other goodies I've ordered is stuck in the post somewhere sadly. Boo Hoo! Will have to be more patient!!
This little cabinet had to be sanded down (least favourite job!) as I'd used it previously and was never happy with it so gave it a make over. It is painted with a few coats of matt emulsion, then stamped with Tim Holtz Pappillon stamps and a Lost coast butterfly one in archival ink. I used a combination of water colours, inktense pencils and distress inks to colour the stamps. Then I waxed over the cabinet with some wood balsam I picked up from Tescos so much easier than using matt medium which makes the distress inks run and varnish which never seems to go on with out runs or bubbles.
Thanks again for all your lovely comments, so appreciated and hello to some new followers, astounded to say there is nearly a 100, will have to think of some blog candy soon as a thank you.
Happy Crafting XX
