Layered Stamping

Hello everybody,
I finally got around to playing with my new WPlus9 goodies. I tried some layered stamping with the Pretty Peonies Stamp Set.......the results are awesome, there's so much you can do with this set, can't wait to create more cards with it.
The sentiment is from the "Quite Like You" stamp set from WPlus9, and the stitched scalloped rectangle die is also from WPlus9.

Decoupaged VIntage Mini Chest of Drawers

Decoupage has been on my mind for a very long time, and the hoarder that I am I have a carton full of MDF blanks - I have wishing wells, trays, boxes, some more boxes and lots more.
Before venturing to make this chest of drawers I decoupage a few boxes, so I was fairly confident that I would be able to pull this off.
I began by painting the entire surface with Gesso mixed with Teal acrylic paint. After the paint dried I added the patterned paper (which is from DCWV Cherry Blossoms stack) with Mod Podge. Distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and even scrapped the MDF wood from some edges to create a worn out vintage look.
Printed out some free vintage photos to put in the tiny frames (the bigger one is from Prima) and added some cute trinkets and charms.
The drawer knobs are traditional Indian Kundan buttons.
The chest of drawers measure 6.5x3.5x9"

Hi, I was MIA for sometime, one of the reasons of which was my broken Bigshot. I did manage to fix it with the help of this awesome blogpost by my dear crafty friend Sonia and also prompt supply of spare parts by Reena Gupta.

Now onto the card. I stuck to black and white color theme keeping with the Week 134:Monochrome Challenge at Casology. The sketch inspiration is from CAS(E) this Sketch #111
