Beau Elegance

Well, inspired by my Beau Chateau gift box, I have ventured once again into the realm of shabby chic and tried out my new Established Elegance set for the first time. Much trial and error went into this one as I left my comfort zone and there were some last minute additions which luckily didn't completely ruin the whole thing!

The front tag was sprayed with champagne shimmer mist, so it has a soft, subtle sparkle which looks nice IRL. I tried to cover up as many roosters as I could - roosters, for goodness' sakes?!!! - but still leave the other gorgeous details of the dsp to show through.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Established Elegance, Creative Elements
  • card - soft suede, marina mist, whisper white, Beau Chateau DSP
  • other - marina mist satin ribbon, pearls, Two Tags die, Big Shot, non SU flowers, Designer Frames EF, sponge daubers, dimensionals, shimmer paint

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by.

I love it Kerry! From the looks of it, you need not be scared of shabby chic! You did a lovely card.
I love the colours and the impressed frame with the flowers is the perfect little touch.
I have been eyeing off that stamp set and by the way, I agree with you on the roosters!

I'm with you on the "roosters". Could never understand why anyone would get that rooster stamp that was doing the rounds a little while ago. What a pretty project, Kez ... and I can tell by all the lovely detail that some time went into this one! Hugs xx
