The title is La Ballerina; obviously it is a vintage figure, which I altered with Spica and Micron pens and put it on a background of alcohol inks blended with a metallic blender. A swath of crumpled gold foil is held in place by an old jewelry finding and the tag is topped off with a beaded flourish.
Yesterday I did an ATC for a swap entitled "When I Was Born..." which had to include the year you were born. So, truth time! It wasn't hard to see the cost differences between then and now, and I included part of an old advertisement which underscores the view then of the importance of Women In The Kitchen!
I hand drew a postage cancellation with my birthday and birthplace. I don't think too many women today would think being crowned with a sauce pot was a good thing!
