Spotlight - Teen boy

Design team member Fiona has set a challenge for you this fortnight and that is to make a card for a TEENAGE BOY.  It's one we often dread - making male themed cards so face your fears with this one!


I chose the Mo Manning image because it reminded me of my 15 year old son, who spends a great deal of his time playing on his X-box, and coloured the image with Promarkers. Used K&Co recycled cardstock and ran one layer through a ribbler to add texture then distressed the edges and sanded the surface with an emery board. Used recycled twine to attach button and added a sentiment from Personal Impressions.

Challenges entered:
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes + Optional - Something New (image)
My Grafico - Anything goes
Aud Sentiments - Something for a child
Fussy and Fancy - Something for a child
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - distressing

This is lovely, Jenni. Mo's images are so often 'true to life' in their own way and this is certainly that!
