SDC241 - TV Show or Movie Inspired

Time for a new challenge over at Stampotique this week the theme is,
"TV Show or Movie Inspired".
 Set by Kristen Catalano this is what she says about the challenge.
" This week I want to see what you can create that is inspired by your favourite TV Show or Movie".
Er, well, where to begin, I have loads of favourite films, however, on this occasion I thought I'd go for a TV series instead.
The 100 popped into my head, so I decided to go with it and create a journal page.

Quick recap of what the 100 is about, Planet earth basically kills it's self  with weapon of mass destruction and chemical warheads etc etc. Before it finally bites the dust humans are sent into space to live on a space station while the earth recovers.
Many hundreds of years later the space stations are falling apart and it is decided to send the criminals down to earth to see if it is habitable. Criminal is too strong a word really as its all the teenagers who have done something stupid like taken an extra slice of bread for lunch as rations were being monitored. Anyhow 100 kids are sent to fend for themselves to earth and meet a few of the locals who are not happy with the arrival of the space teenagers. Fighting ensues with a few friendships, deaths and survival problems as with any series it's beginning to go a bit off the rails totally not like the books. What's new, artistic licence prevails. Oh and its all very dark, greys and blacks just me all over.

So here is my page. 

I began by distressing the whole page with grey distress ink. Stamping heads on the page to give the impression of lots of people in the background along with  France Papillon journal page in watering can archival ink added a touch of interest.
Small flowers were stamped along the bottom edge in leaf green and black archival ink.
Washi tape was added to the lower edge to create the grounding. The title was hand drawn and overdrawn with an archival pen cut out and colour added again with distress ink.

The characters were stamped cut out and coloured, yes, in grey and black. What can I say its true to the series.

So that's me done for this week, hope you like it.
