Grunge Flowers,and another Suitcase

Hi guys,I have been trying to keep myself busy by making some more grunge flowers,the flowers I found on this lovely lady's blog but unfortunaltely could only see the pictures,on her blog as computer would not let me play the video so had to come up with my own version.
so hope you like them,I have used Farmers,Marker papers,TH inks,stamps and other bits and pieces,to create this vintage suitcase.
These are 2 Atc,s I have made to go inside the suitcase which fit perfectly,papers,7 Gypsies,other bits from my stash,
I have also made this tag and this is the one with the flower I made from grungepaper,which took me a while but really pleased how this has turned out.

I have used,distress ink to stamp the flourish,some old paper from an old book,one of Tims,tickets,leave,and my flower I made,then just added an old embellishment from my stash,
you can see Pennys wonderful blog HERE along with her tutorial for the flowers,just wish I could have seen how she made them but,i just studdied,hers for a while and then just did my best may try again too see the video tommorrow.
Also my friend Jude is offering some wonderful september candy on her blog which you can see on my side bar if you would like to enter,
