Two Weeks in a Row

Hi everyone. Are we enjoying the wonderful British summer?! I think I'm getting webbed feet :o
I thought I would try to discipline myself to blog once a week so here I am for the second week in a row.
I have been playing with the shelf unit thingy that I showed you last week. After base coating it thoroughly I painted the bottom section and the drawers with Fresco Finish in claret, then a layer of crackle glaze and a top coat of vintage lace:

I left the drawer handles plain claret - love that colour for an accent shade!
Decided this was way too pink and clean looking so I set to work with various washes of Fresco Finish - pumpkin soup, claret, chocolate pudding, then dry brushing with French roast. Lots of tissue tape, stamping onto Paperartsy crackle - amazing stuff (did you play with it yet H?) and some die cut metal.

The little vases are fancy bottle tops painted and stamped with script.
Thanks for looking.

LOL! No, not yet... it's sitting here safe, I've had a couple of DT bits to do. Your drawer thingy is looking just fantastic! Definitely prefer it less pink...

Can't think why but am absolutely starving now after reading that list of colours :)

Looks amazing - love all those cogs!
