Time for a change...

 This wonderful  image by Penny Black is one of four retired images I found at a great site called PB Stamps run by Dick Robinson.  Dick has a  section for retired Penny Black stamps that is wonderful!  His service, prices and shipping costs are great and he is very fast with email responses and always mails same day as payment.  I am in love with this web site!

I used shades of oranges to color this image with Copics - sponged the edges with Distress Inks and then layered that panel on coordinating colors from Basic Grey.  The first two panels are floated on foam tape over the plaid and orange embellishments were added to the corners.
