This is so teen for me with "ironic pink" (to quote Dee) being ok.

I've used watercolour pencils for the clothes & hair, promarkers for the skin and metallic gel pens for the jewellery.  The letters are die cut & the numbers are hand cut from glitter card. I found a glitter glue almost the same shade as the glitter card for the stripe (similar to the recipient's own).
The glitter card has a lovely sparkle & you can see one or two glints in the photo. The metallic gel pens sparkle much better irl, as does the glitter glue.
I've layered a glittered & a black Lacey die cut circle so as to allow the glitter to show through, please excuse the extra shadow.
The intended shading around the digi was created with a blue water colour pencil. This is my first attempt so some review will be needed.
