1 Ink the cupboard in Versacolor Bark ink. Edge around the stamp with the Pinecone ink for added dimension.
Lightly tap the inked stamp onto a crumpled paper bag and then stamp the cupboard onto a spare piece of white card; this technique will create a distressed texture to the stamped image.
Allow to dry and then cut out the cupboard. Use a craft knife to cut around three inner edges of the doors and score the outer edge to enable the doors to open and close.

2 Place the cupboard in position on your card and draw a faint pencil line on the card tracing the inside of the cupboard doors as a guide for stamp placement.
Stamp tools of your choice inside the guidelines.

3 Repeat the inking process on two of the shelves from the On the shelf collection. Stamp one at an angle as if the shelf has fallen off the wall.

4 Stamp the large Paint pot on its side on top of the shelf in Atlantic ink and the small paint pot in Silver.
Ink up the paintbrush in three colours, starting with the metal part of the paintbrush in silver, the brush tip in Umber and the handle in Neptune. Hint; Using the small 1” versacolor pads makes this easier.
5 Stamp the image so it hangs off the end of the shelf.

6 Stamp the greeting on the bottom shelf and stamp extra tools to fill the spaces.

7 Rub out the pencil lines and glue the pre-stamped and cut out cupboard in place on the card front.

8 Using Onyx black Liquid Pearls squeeze a small amount on to the end of the paintbrush. To make the paint drips use small amounts and drag a pin through to shape.
Repeat the process with the paint can.
Sketch around the edges with a fine liner.

Why not try combining the above with the Last Orders stamp set for a different look.
