Happy Birthday Wishes Hal...

 I am crazy about this little tyke... his name is Harry and he is a perfectly charming image to color!  He is also so perfect for my older male cousins' birthdays.

  • Focal image "Harry" is from the Zuri Artsy Craftsy Store
  • Paper Tole Technique used to 3D the focal image.  Colored  with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted', the layers were either glued &/or elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Base CS is "Recollections"- White, 110 lb., purchased at Michael's.
  • Fishtail banners are OMD (Off My Desk) paper scraps.
  • Blue button "sewn" with orange twine thru the three banners.
  • Large dots E-folder is a Tim Holtz and the music score is from ???

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer. 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
