Penny Black Challenge 62 - blue, cream & tan

The Penny Black Challenge (62) this week reqires three colours in addition to the PB image; blue, cream & tan.
Unlike some challenges, you can't add other colours, green or skin etc.
So I thought a sepia kind of treatment might work with a little tinting with the blue, so here it is!

I used the K&Co mega pad again for the backing paper and layered the Nestability mats with 3d foam for dimension. I just touched the corners with Adirondack Mushroom inkpad.
The image is, clearly, Penny Black and is coloured with copics.
Added a blue satin ribbon and a Laura Ashley fabric brad and we're done!
Thanks for looking!
Hugs,
Ei
