Teenage kicks

So my niece hit the big 16 this week - I can just about remember that age, gearing up to O Levels, alcohol had only really been sniffed at not consumed, a lot of black was worn on the body and the eyes (not much changed there then) and none of us thought George Michael liked boys as he sung his way through Club Tropicana in tight white shorts .....

So what do you get the oh so trendy 16 year old then? Well money of course - duh! She got that but I also made her a banner for her bedroom in true black / purple goth colour scheme.

Each Stampotique lady is inked in archival and then various DI's were scrubbed, rubbed and sprinkled on - you'll have to guess what colours 'cos I used so many. . Glimmer mists in dark colours wer sprayed over the top, I think mostly black cherry and twilight - again sticking to that goth vibe.
The ladies were mounted on a black card tag that had been embossed with the Sixxix snake skin looking one (you know the one) and then mounted on a purple die cut shape (Paperartsy) which had been stamped with swirls in eggplant and clear embossed and then overstamped with the same swirl (Tim Holtz) in black ink. Various ribbons, buttons and paper flowers added as well.
Each corner had a black eyelet and they were knotted together with black and purple ribbon.

Response from oh so cool 16 year old? Oh you're getting better. Humph .......
