Over at Simon Says Wednesday they have a challenge of die crazy, so I decided I wanted to make an altered trading box (ATB).

I coloured the outside of the box purple and stamped a PA mini script in black stazon.

I coloured the inside panels in lime green and stamped the EV scratchy rectangle in cactus green stazon.

I stamped various images from the PA Ink and Dog wings plates onto the panels in black stazon.

I stamped the flourish and post marks in olive green stazon.

And added some of the frameworks die cuts in black and green card.

And some feet using the wooden sudoko tiles and colouring with a black marker.

And a cut out butterfly from TH crowded attic patterned papers for the top.

I'm also entering into Fashionable Stamping challenges this week as Alison (aka Butterfly) has chosen a theme of a 3d object.

This piece was picked by Alison for the Saturday Spotlight here
