PBSC September - Anything Goes (Optional 'Something Old/Neglected')

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Something Old or Neglected'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I had a rummage through my Penny Black stamps to see if I could find anything that I hadn't used recently...and came across this adorable hedgie stamp called 'Guess?' I couldn't remember the last time I'd used searched on my blog, and found that (to my shame) I'd only used it once...and that was back in 2013! I think that definitely counts as neglected! So I decided I should rectify the situation, and inked it up for this challenge. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, then coloured it using watercolour pencils. I paired it with papers from the 'Charmed' pad by Recollections/Michaels (found at TK Maxx) for a more masculine feel...distressing the edges a little, then adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The little sentiment stamp is from the Woodware 'Dotty Flowers' set.

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