Jungle Boogie

DD has been asking about being a nature photographer when she grows up so I thought this would be cute for her upcoming 10th birthday. And it made me think of that Jungle Boogie song (which has been stuck in my head all day) so this card is also for the October 2008: For a Song Central Theme Fan Club challenge.

These cute images were received from my PIF friends Anemone (Thanks Kelly!) and Photoholic (Thanks Shannah!) over at the PIF images thread. These girls have me really hooked on High Hopes and I’m proud to say I have placed my first High Hopes order! Yippee!

I colored the individual images my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I then cut them all out. I wanted the jungle greenery to go all the way across the card and I didn't want poor Sheila to get lost in the jungle so I cut the jungle background into 2 pieces. Since these were simple cuts on my background and I wanted them to line up into certain parts of the images, I actually cut them after I inked them (unusual for me). The brown areas needed a little something so I drew in a few more rocks and some dots.
