Grunge Rose,postcard,Torso,and another chest

Evening,everyone gosh what is the matter with this weather one minute the sun is shining the next the heavens,open and now we have terrfic gale force winds,plus thunderstorms all afternoon too.
Not much of a summer was it oh well at least gives us an excuse to craft more,not that we need one.
I have made my first rose from Grunge paper,stamped onto it with one of tims,stamps,then used fired brick,then added some sepia glossy accents,to it.
DP's,7 gypsies,wow they have some stunning papers out at the moment I for one cant get enough of them.
I have added other bits,and pieces,too mostly,from sir Tim,

Next I have altered another small chest I have had a while,I have stamped onto Tissue,then adhered to the chest,added some modge podge,then some pieces,of off cuts,from 7 gypsies papers,added some alchohol inks,to the flowers,scrolls,and things then went over all of the chest with tan paint,and some distress paint. I have used a stamp from craft stamper,which I have again printed onto tissue and then gone over it with paint,and it shows through,just enough.hope you like it all the rest of the images,have been stamped onto tissue.
Now finally for my torso which I am entering again into,something completley different,the theme this week is by the sea,I have used the shell from craft stamper,brocken china,distress inks,a shell,chain and some beads,which is part of a necklace,I took apart then another one of the scrolls which my dear friend Lorraine sent me thanks hun.  I know they look white around,them but they were not quite dry,when I took this picture,but you cant see it now as has dried completley clear.  I just wanted to get this on my blog,as did not want to miss the challenge.

Finally before I go I want to thank my dear friend Sarah,for this brill award,bless you hun for thinking of me,
plus,dear Linby gave me one too and also my dear buddy Jackie too how cool are these guys,
I really love it when I get awards,as it always means,that people like you blog,or like you well hope so anyway,he he look a right arse,if no one did.
But thanks again,guys really means a lot to me. Now off too see if there are any more challenges I can enter,
