Lilyboo Designs Safari Jake In The Jungle Scene

I have a fun Lilyboo Designs card to share today!
I used Lilyboo's Safari Jake Sitting Pretty & In The Jungle Scene digital images and merged them to make my scene.  I've been wanting to color more of the Lilyboo scenes but feel a little intimidated by coloring an entire scene.  When I'm finished I always think, "that was fun!" so I just need to keep coloring and enjoying myself!

I used almost the entire card front for the scene because when the images are really small they are harder for me to see and color.  Since there was a nice space between Jake and the tree I wanted to add a sentiment & made my own on the computer to match the font for the birthday sentiment on the inside of my card, sorry I didn't take a picture of the inside. It's not very exciting, just plain with the birthday sentiment, coloring the tree again for the inside might have been fun - next time!  I used the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax dies to cut out my sentiment.  The two layers don't really line up the way it looks on my card, I trimmed the edges off of the brown colored card stock to fit my preference.  I wanted to add a little something extra to an otherwise simple card so I wound a piece of jute twine around the sentiment flag.  To curl the ends I wrapped the jute twine around a Q Tip that was on the table from blending my background.

The card stock colors I used are Mohawk Bright White for the card base and sentiment, Copic X Press It Blending Card for the coloring & Astrobrights Jupiter Java as a matting layer.

The Copic markers I used are:

Skin - E00, E01, E11
Hair - E30, E31, E33, Y32
Clothes - YG91, YG93, YG95, E81, E84
Tree Trunk - E30, E31, E34, E37
Leaves - G40, G43, G46, BG90, BG93, BG96, G21, 
G24, G28, YG01, YG13, YG25, YG67
Rope - E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Background/Outline - B0000, B01
