Mixed Media......

Yes another Penny Black...what makes you think I've bought a few new ones lately?
Now this stamp is a bit different and I didn't notice it until I was speaking to my friend Val who also has the same stamp but Val had noticed that the music on this stamp is actually UPSIDE DOWN.....I wonder if PB know?? Anyway I'm sure most people wouldn't notice, I didn't!
Backing paper is SU Bashful Blue designer paper, image stamped and masked so that I could stipple around it using SU So Saffron, the flowers have been 3D. On a couple of the flowers I have used some tiny seed beads just to add texture. Frame made using SU punches, Cuttlebug corner dies, SU Ribbon and of course a pearls...
Thanks for looking.
