Penny Black retired image again... this one is sooo much fun to color! The details of the layers of her clothes and then the stylized quilted flower in the background made this a little more time consuming. First, the base CS is covered with "Newsprint" in a very light brown Distress Ink.
Gold details were added to the clock with glue and foil and a ribbon was added for texture. The camera is not picking up the colors consistently - the ribbon actually matches the roses in her skirt.
