Three Challenges - a bit of a record for me!

This is my entry for this week's Allsorts challenge, where the theme is 3 or more punches, this month's Penny Black at Allsorts, where the theme is punches and this fortnight's Stampman challenge, where the theme is 'distress'.
I used Penny Black letters and flowers for the main image and paisley swirls for the backgrounds. I stamped and distressed with stormy sky, antique linen and walnut ink distress inks. I am loving this colour combo at the moment. The punches I used (3 different leaves and the little flowers) were from woodware and x-cut. My big flower was made using shapeabilities flower creations 3 held together with three brads. I creased and sprayed the petals before I assembled them with a combination of starburst stains and creative colour sprays. Here is a close up of the flower...
 The Sponsor at Allsorts this week is Stamp Addicts, and of course the Stampman have a wonderful voucher on offer for their winner and Penny Black have some fabulous stamps available for their winners.
Thanks for looking!
