Carson's Birthday...

 Another Grandson's birthday coming up - and Mo's images to the rescue!  Finding a non-cutsy image for a teenage boy is not always easy.  This Mo Manning image fills the bill - cell phones and/or headphones are pretty much a constant at this age.  I had fun with this one adding paper piecing to the chair.
  • The Birthday sentiment is a very old rubber stamp from a 1992 Country Impressions.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Base CS and mats are "Recollections" [Ivory] from Michaels.
  • DP is Teresa Collins: "Far and Away".
  • Inside uses papers left over from the front.

  • White "Candi " was colored with Copics to match the books in the chair.
  • Oval Punch is a McGill.
  • Image was printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
