Altered Drawers !

For my Katzelkraft  DT project I decided to alter one of four sets of drawers that have been gathering dust in my craft room.

 I painted the drawers with white matt emulsion and then sanded them lightly. The panels are all made from white card that I've used Broken China and Peacock Feathers DI on. I've used several Katzelkraft stamps sets - Paris Monuments, Nature, Alphabet Corrupt, Steamkatz, Steampunk Swirl and Paris Postal.

 I've stamped all of the images with black Archival ink and then I've used a stencil over the top with more DI.

 This gorgeous dress from is from the new Steamkatz stamp set and the letters are from the Alphabet Corrupt set.

 I've used the Alphabet Corrupt again and the cogs are from the Steampunk Swirl and Steamkatz sets.

On the top panel I've stamped the feathers around the edge and stamped the text without using an acrylic block so that it didn't give a perfect result. I also couldn't resist doing some spritz and flick on the top panel too ! I thoroughly enjoyed making this project, I haven't done this much stamping on one thing for ages !

All of the stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK or from Katzelkraft in France. 

I'm also entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is use your favourite technique, I've used a few on this project but I guess my no.1 favourite has to be spritz and flick !
