Penny Black Saturday Challenge 7 - Down On The Farm

I promised another challenge and here it is! This time is the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, and the brief is:

Challenge 7 - Down on the Farm!!
this week we would like you to use images of anything you would find down on the farm!
as always its entirely up to you what you make - card, atc, altered art etc.. as long as it features
at least on penny black image.

The image is 'Everest Next' (features little mice trying to climb) and has been coloured with watercolour paints. The background has been cut from brown corrugated card which I thought gave a rustic feel, with the image layered behind. Jute string frames the image with buttons threaded onto the string with a double bow on one corner and a button with ribbon bow on the opposite corner.
See how restrained I've been with the ribbon?!! This was a lovely image to watercolour and really enjoyed the challenge!
