Victoriana in Pink and Black

Happy Saturday to everyone and best wishes for a marvelous weekend!

I had so much fun in making this little 4-drawer chest topped with an easel card using two fabulous products from the Southern Ridge Trading Company shop. I used the beautiful flourish border BOR-345 and hearts from the HRT-080.

You can see that, on the front,  I used the two ends of the BOR-345, painting them with black acrylic paint before placing them as the anchor for the floral treatment.

On the back, I used two of the hearts from HRT-080, painting them with white acrylic paint before topping them with a bit of fancy! The other embellishments are the same as I used on the front of the card and are listed below.

I will attempt to give you as many details as I can but you can tell that I used so many things that I will surely miss part of them. I first made the little 4-drawer chest and you can Google that since there are so many different instructions and options and I can't remember which one I used...except that it ended up 6" square. For the drawer pulls, I dipped the little open roses into ModPodge several times so they would look like ceramic. I then added some black satin bows and MS punched rose leaves. I also painted some little black spools to use as legs for the chest.

I used 3 layers of double-sided DP for the top and rolled back two sheets of the opposite corners for dimension and for places to tuck in a ribbon tag and some little Victorian crystal wheat, rosebuds, berries, glass baubles. Rather than use a paper doily I used some pre-gathered lace and black guipure lace in a semi-circle to serve as the base for the flowers/stuff!  haha I used various roses and rosebuds, crystal flowers, stick pins, ceramic heart, chenille heart, organza butterflies. I also used a small lace butterfly in the lower corner topped with tiny pearls. And of course it wouldn't be Victorian without its share of border pearls!!

Here are some more views. If I have missed anything, please just jot me a note and I will try to answer your questions---but this is nothing new for sure!

Thank you so much for visiting us today and we hope you will go over and check out all of the amazing products at Southern Ridge Trading Company. Until the next time, big hugs from Jacque!
