Making collage from Lucky Bags

Thought I'd make an example of what to make from one of the little lucky bags. Not that you need any help—I thankfully see the bags leave the shop one by one, sometimes several at a time. Thank you so much for this :-)

I find matching the elements for the bags, pondering the coherence between objects very inspiring, so I couldn't help making a collage using the elements of one of the bags.
I chose this bag as inspiration (had to use different picture lottery cards, though, since most of them are one of a kind). The bag sold out while making this collage. Luckily there are more to choose from, and more to come.

Images from the process:
Selecting stamps and deciding background pattern 
Stamped background and glued on music sheet 
Dapping acryllic paint (using a piece of tissue paper) to tone the background down
Sanding rose paper for a patinated look
After this, I placed the elements and moved them around a lot to see where they were best placed, used a few more stamps and glued everything on.
