Penny Black Saturday #11 - No Cards Allowed

I have been meaning to make a new mobile phone charm for about 2 months since my old one snapped so the challenge this week from Penny Black Saturday was the prompt I needed!

I coloured the Penny Black image with Polychromos pencils onto shrink plastic and water-coloured the background before popping it onto some chain and adding beads and a charm. I'll be jingly jangly again now - hurrah!
