Mo's Rory On a Dresser

Hello there!

Today I'm ready to show you a chest of drawers I made.

As a base I used this tutorial, but during the process I decided to make my own changes. I re-enforced all the drawers with the strips of firm paper (cut from a cornflakes box), and also decided to make all the dresser's sides from chipboard (and not from cardstock), hopefully this will prolong the life of the dresser :)
This is how the drawer looked like before an assembly:

I figured that Rory from Mo's Digital Pencil will fit perfectly for this project. I colored her with the following Copics:
Skin: E0000, E00, E21, E11, E13, R20
Hair: E18, E15, E13, E11
Rosette: YG09, YG07, YG01; RV17, RV14, RV13
Shirt: YG09, YG07, YG01
Overall: B06, B04, B02, B01
Shoes: YR24, YR23, YR21, YR20;  T3, T1
Ground: T5, T4, T3, T2, T1 + Blender

So, all the drawers are ready to be filled with anything you want to put there! :)

The tags' place is from the back of the dresser:

More close-ups:

The dimensions of the dresser:
Height: 8,5" (including the oval frame), 5,5" (not including it)
Width: 6,5"
Depth: 3 3/4"
Drawer size: 3" X 3.5" X 1"

I really hope you liked this project!
As usually, it was fun to make something new!
