Welcome to DAY # 25
of this month long blog hop. 
The full blog roll is in the side bar and all the details of prizes, rules etc can be found HERE.
Today we have another project by
Hi all ... after a short break it's me again with a mini chest of drawers. The second one in a week, as I noticed ... but it's an inspiration, isn't it? ;-)

Supplies used
moth from plate 42 dark night PLATECP42 
the scream E187 
dancing skeletons SW F06098  
evil pumpkin SW F13053 
skull flourish CP P414 

modelling paste 10240 
versamark ink pad  TS-VM001 
crackle medium
acrylic paint
stazOn ink pad timber brown

To create texture the piece was covered with modelling paste and painted with red-brown acrylic paint. The single drawers that were white originally were sanded completely and some brown wax cream was rubbed onto them to highlight the veins of the wood, the edges were sponged with stazon brown.
I used some knobs, sanded them a bit so that the paint would have something to grip, first a roughly applied wash of quinacridone gold, then some verdigris tinted paint. After stamping the images a crackle medium was added and the cracks were highlighted with quin gold again.
Finally I heat embossed the surfaces with frantage embossing enamel aged copper.
I didn't have a specific look in mind I wanted to create for this small wooden piece, I just went on ... :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Suzanne xx

This chest of drawers certainly is different from the previous one. It seems to be a stone chest, and the knobs seem to be made from porcelain. You have done a great job with this wooden chest!

I like how you left the drawer faces plain. Really makes your piece stand out from the others
