A Dressed Up Tribute To Teens!

Gingersnap Creations GC115 is a tribute to "Teens" and City Crafter Challenge Blog is looking for "All Dressed-UP!  So here is my tribute to the well dressed teen!  Speaking of, this is going to my G-Daughter, who is a teen and loves my bookmarks, tags and cards!  She really made me proud last week, when she told me she was going into nursing!  Now someone will be able to take care of me!! 

This lovely teen was stamped a few times on Tim Holtz paper and also white card stock.  The actually image was stamped on the TH notepaper card stock along with the gift and gift bags, which were colored and then clear embossed.  The actual clothes, purse and shoes were cut out after being stamped on white paper and clear embossed with a background stamps.  All was then colored and carefully cut!!!  Lots of paper piecing here!! 
The butterflies are from Cheery Lynn Designs and were cut from shrinky dink and then colored with Sharpies!  Now I was trying to stick to the colors on the image, but these would be so beautiful colored in more muted tones.  I was not sure if that would work, but it did and the dies were not harmed!  I cut the white butterflies after the shrinky dink cuts!  If you do this, you have to run it back and forth a couple of times.  Love these US made dies.

Thank you so much for stopping by to have a look.  I hope you have a wonderful week.  My sister is coming from Arizona for the Labor Day weekend, so that should be fun!

Stamps:  Stampin UP
Inks:  Stazon Black,  Stampin UP Gable Green
Markers:  Sharpie Green and Pink, Stampin UP  Blush, Pinks, Carmel, Black, Yellow, Spica Clear
