We just had a swap on UK Stampers to use up a "Thingamabob". You know, the little thing you bought or saved and thought "I'll use that one day". The day came lol!!
I bought a set of two little papier mache books ages ago and decided the smaller one would make an excellent little Olde Curiosity Shoppe so I painted it with acrylics inside and out, cut a window and put acetate in it before making curtains out of velvet ribbon. The stamps are all from Graphic 45 apart from the window which is Lost Coast Designs. I stuck on a shelf and made some hinges. The little bottles are filled with glitter and alcohol inks and I filled a little blank frame with a vintage photo before filling it with Crystal Lacquer. I also used a couple of charms.
I wish I had put some "wallpaper" behind it now of the opulent velveteen embossed kind. Ah well, there's always next time - although I am happy to say that the recipient seems really pleased with it as it is!!

It's new theme time over on Gothic Arches and this time it's "Black and White. A bit of hot pink crept into mine - that happens a lot lol!!
Anyway I have used a Prima background stamp and a Sizzix die with a bit of Prima bling. Hope you can join us this time.
