Winner! Playing Dress-up...

So Cool... I won the iCopic Weekly Challenge with this one!
Talk about some of my favorite things!  Love this retired Penny Black image I was able to locate, Copics, Distress Inks and using Duo Glue and foils with my Calligrapher Fine Liner to embellish!

 Using the Blue-Violets with moss green is pleasing to me.  I picked up the colors from the Basic Grey background.
The embellishments of the pearl jewelry and the heart pin on the bow don't show even in the close-up - but they are delightfully shiny with coordinating foils.  And finally the swirls on the corners of the image panel to frame the image.
IMAGES:  The focal image is retired from Penny Black
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; DP Basic Grey’s “Oliver”, base CS is from my endless stash.
INKS: The edges of the image panel and the background paper are distressed with Distress Inks, the focal image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black  & colored with Copics:
