Simon Says Stamp Challenge, Spots &/or Stripes

This is a brown paper lunch bag decorated with Graphic 45's "Wizard of Oz" and "Alice in Wonderland" papers.  I love the way their colors match even if it is not the same subject theme.  The stamping is with Studio G alphabet stamps saying:  "The Old Bag".  The stripes  found at the bottom of the bag  have been enhanced with compasses cut out of G45 paper along with Tim Holtz's gears, a little silver chain and some tiny compasses that should point West in honor of the wicked witch.  I used black gros grain ribbon to tie it shut and a little bit of Ranger's Seedless Preserves (purple-ish) ink to distress the top portion of the sack.  The silver hands are by Alpha stamps, they have the most wonderful Steampunk ephemera!  If you look closely you can see the red pearls at the center of some of the compasses, just like the color of Dorothy's shoes.  Ding Dong the witch isn't dead, she just got sacked.
