Penny Black Sketch Challenge # 36

The Penny Black challenge this week is a sketch:

Which I have flipped to create this:

Apologies again for the weird shadows - halogen lights in the kitchen... The image was sent to me by Kath in a recent Funky Hand team image swop which I have coloured with watercolour pencils (and I don't think a particularly good attempt either - there is something that I'm not happy about, but don't know what..) All the papers are off-cuts from word books made with Huge Funky Love download - the taupe coloured backing paper is actually vellum whilst the rest are printed onto thick white card.
All edges have been inked with Chestnut Whispers. The card candy is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon is from the never ending spool that I bought from Ribbon Oasis. I deliberately left a longer tie on the ribbon towards the bottom of the card, so it gives a sense of gravity. Hehehhe! You know what I mean though, don't you?!
