Birthday Tiger

 This is my entry for Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge this week "Animals."  My absolute favorite thing to color!  I decided to use this gorgeous tiger image.  They have so many beautiful animal digis for you animal lovers out there.  I always check Google images before I color now so I can at least attempt to color accurately.  A while ago I colored a skunk with the stripes done completely wrong..  I learned my lesson...now I do some research!  I colored  the image with Copics and edged the paper with Stampin' Up pastels.  The paper is from Graphics 45 "A Proper Gentleman."  The eyelets are from my stash.  I wonder if I'll actually ever use them up.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Birthday Sundaes Old Neglected Stash
One Stitch at a Time Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations Birthdays or Thanksgiving
Fab 'n Funky Birthday
Papercraft Star Anything Goes
Clear It Out Challenge Orange & Brown
Rainbow Lady's Challenge Cards for Men
Creative Craft Challenge Free for All

Copics:  C0, C1, C3, E11, E13, R12, YR20, YR21, YR24
