Secret Crafter Ch 16 & Sketch Saturday 35

God! What a weekend I had! Not sure if you have seen it on the news but there have been awful storms in France and Spain, and we got up on Saturday morning (after a sleepless night) to find a huge pine tree from the house two doors down from us had blown down. The tree is sitting in our immediate neighbours garden and the top of it came into our garden, so we have spent all weekend cutting down the part that was in our garden and trying to fix our fence. Not fun! Consequently I haven't done any crafting for a while, but I did manage a card last night. It is for Secret Crafter Challenge 16 which is to use 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments and I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Sketch 35. The penny black image has been coloured with distress inks and the papers are from K & Co.
Card/Papers: Cream and pink card, K & Co - sparkly sweet
Stamp: Penny Black
Colouring: Ranger distress inks - broken china (background), tattered rose, worn lipstick, vintage photo, walnut stain, dusty concord and spiced marmalade.
Embellishments: Jewels, punched flowers
Tools: Water brush, flower punch, wavy blade for paper trimmer
Thanks for looking x
