This is my 5th project using the beautiful Scraps of Elegance July Kit, Country Chic, featuring 49 and Market Cottage Life paper.

My sister Nancy in 1965

I used the Main KitPatterned Paper Add-onElements Add-on and Floral Add-on.

Elements Add-on

I started with the Branching Out paper included in the Main Kit.  I did some punching around the edges and some random stamping using Cobalt Archival Ink.  I also did some inking around the edges of the paper and over the stamped areas with the cobalt ink using a Clarity stencil brush.

Gabi's Ethereal Stamp Set

This page was layered over the Fresh Delivery paper (in the Main Kit) to show through the punched areas. The center of the Fresh Delivery paper was cut out to make a circular mat for the photo.

I then made some die-cuts using another piece of the Branching Out paper from the Patterned Paper Add-on and the Provence paper from the Main Kit.  These were layered over a black cardstock version and offset slightly to accentuate the edges.

These are the dies and punch I used:

Timeless Rectangles
EK Success

The flowers and butterflies were all from the Elements Add-on and Floral Add-on.

The metal filigree piece was from the Main Kit.

The other trinkets, button and chipboard flourishes were from my stash. I embossed the chipboard pieces with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Pop Rock Purple embossing powder included in the Main Kit.
