Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - 7 Gypsies

Anyone who has been awake for the last month, watching TV or reading newspapers, might have noticed that it is 100 years since the loss of RMS Titanic. I was looking at the lovely 7 Gypsies stuff that I have for this weeks challenge and noticed that there are several sheets in the pack (Camden 6x6 2-sided paper variety pack) and realised that this was a link between the two things!

So, I went hunting for images on the tinter-web and found lots of fascinating stuff. I was most inspired by the images of the people on board, both those who survived, and those who didn't.
I started with a brand new pack of 7 Gypsies ATC card blanks in cream. I added various papers from the Camden pack; ripping, tearing and inking them. The pictures I screwed up, wrinkled, tore and inked to add to the aged look.

I have used 7 Gypsies cloth reinforces in the top right corner of each, then punched through and joined all of the cards together with a book ring.
The only non-7 Gypsies additions are some Graphic 45 cardstock stickers 'Destinations'; and daisyd's cardstock stickers 'Gypsy harvest Scroll' (spot the link!).
