Off the Bunnies, but Still with Penny Black

I just love these Penny Black images for watercoloring! Today, I have abandoned my bunny fixation and I am onto more serious subject matter.

The new Gingersnap Creations Garden Challenge inspired me to pick out this old favorite. The image is so detailed that I really wanted to just show it off so I did a very simple layout. Hope you like it!
