Shabby chic box

Hi all!

I made a box and decorated it shabby chic style. The colour inspiration is from The shabby Tea Room
and the Misting and Stamping technique inspiration is from Beyond Grey Challenges.
Both the titles were just making me want to try something new. So here's what I came up with.

I don't have a score tool so, the measurements are somewhat roughly around 10.5cm for the boxes. I made them square.
I used the DCWV French stack papers to cover the box and then my laces and pearls around. I distressed the doily with Tattered rose and then misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang glitz spritz cactus gold. You can see it clearly in the picture below. I used a soft muslin cloth and tried stamping on it with the same distress ink for background and then stamped "HOPE" with archival ink. The white flowers are from a lace, I cut them individually and put the small paper roses on them.
Hope the outcome is good.

Thanks for your visit today and all the lovely comments.
