The Key to The Past

Our Paperarts Yahoo Group's bi-monthly Mixed Media swap for June was Hanging Houses.
We made one for each participant and one for ourselves.
This is my offering.
It is approximately 7 inches tall...a WEE bit bigger than required so I hope I am forgiven for that. 
I used part of a COLLECTIONS die cut CHIPBOARD for the house and corrugated silver cardboard for the roof which I distressed with Alcohol Inks.
I printed vintage images onto transparency sheets, backed them with silver tape and adhered them to the back of the cut-out shapes.
I added copper wire for the hanger and a key charm.
There is a little image in the "washer" window frame which is hard to see here. 
It is entitled
"The Key To The Past"

Wonderful house. Cant wait to see it IRL. Must be good to be amongst your own stash to play. Thank goodness you are able to :-)
