Tando Challenge 2 - Rustic Charm!

WHOOOO!!!!!  its the beginning of the month & time for a new challenge over at the  ~TANDO CREATIVE CHALLENGE BLOG~  If you took part in last months please pop over soon to see if you are the lucky prizewinner -D
This months challenge theme is....... RUSTIC can make anything you like as long as it fits the theme.  You don't have to use Tando products for this challenge.  Here is my bit of rustic charm...

Its a diddy little key cupboard from The Craft Barn...its only about 5inches high!  I gave it a colourwash of pink & rubbed some Frayed Burlap DI on the edges.  Paper went onto the hearts & the door insets.  I colourwashed the insed with green.  The bird, branch, mini frame, flowers & hearts are all  chippie by Tando & painted to match with some crackle accents in places.

How cute is that little drawer in the bottom?????  No idea what will go in there hahahaha!

Thank you for taking a look today, the challenge is open all this month, please have a go!  HUGS xxx
