Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Anniversary

We have a new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge starting today, and the theme is:


I've used an old Penny Black image called 'Furry Embrace' that was sent to me several years ago in an image swap. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then inked around the edges using 'Old Paper' and 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Inks. The papers are from the 'Indie Chic' pad by My Mind's Eye...I inked the edges using more 'Brushed Corduroy' ink, then distressed the edges of everything using my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley...I used one of my 'Lacey Circles' Nesties to cut it out...then added some adhesive pearls (from Hobbycraft).

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
