Shopping Madness

The new challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays  is           ' Anything Goes'.
 We do look forward to seeing your projects,  and  hope you will take the time to pop over, see what we have been making and get all the details.

This time I have taken a small double arch, it is about 3 x 5 inches when closed and used Graphics 45  Curiosity Shop  papers  to decorate/collage  it. No stamping, just cutting and sticking.
I'm sure this took more time than it would have done for me to use stamps, but then it wouldn't have been a challenge to myself.


              This is how it looks from the back.


The inside before I added  extras..

Inside with all it's bits and pieces tucked in the pockets. The extra shading is Vintage Photo Distress ink.
Later in the week I will be showing you what else I made when I had these papers on my desk.

Other challenges I will be entering are-

Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes
That Craft Place Challenge Blog -Steampunk
