February Planner

Well, my boyfriend's xbox has returned from being fixed and my piece and quiet has been shattered - I had forgotten what the sound of gunfire was like in the afternoon!!! While he was killing some baddies, I managed to make my February planner this afternoon. I used Dawny's fabulous sketch 7 from Papertake Weekly Challenge, the penny black image is coloured with distress inks and whispers, the papers are dovecraft and I have followed the paisley pattern of the papers through to the embossing. I made the flowers using my flower punch and I used the same paisley paper, finishing each one off with a small jewel in the centre.

Card/Paper: Green and navy card, dovecraft retro flower
Stamps: Penny black - poppy fields, studio g
Colouring: Ranger distress inks - vintage photo, walnut stain, tattered rose, fired brick, dusty concord, broken china and green and black whispers pens
Embellishments: Jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, paisley embossing folder, water brush, flower punch
Thanks for looking x
