Who remembers this.

Yes who remembers this Penny Black stamp a
lot of you will be too young to have ever seen it.
I think it would be over a decade since I have inked it up.
So when Penny Black  Saturday challenge wanted flowers,
I opened one of my drawers of PB stamps and this one jumped out.
I really enjoyed colouring it with my copics, used so many 

Had a hard time covering the jars with dimensional magic as it has gone thick and gluggy
Probably need some more.
Then added some glitter to the flower centres just to give it a zing.
The words were computer generated

This rather reminds me of the jam jars we used to keep in the kitchen
to put the flowers both dead and alive that the children use to bring in after going for a walk.

Have followed the sketch at A Gem of a challenge. 

Am entering this in:
