Make it Colourful - Cast your Shadow

Hi everyone!! A very quick post from me just to share a card I made for Make it Colourful. The challenge is to 'cast your shadow' onto the ground and objects.

I merged my 2 images - Notti and the treasure chest  - and had it coloured up for Make it Crafty's Facebook challenge - which is themed Favourite Colours {Teal & Mustard!!} - and then I created the background and shadows so that I could enter the Make it Colourful challenge.

The papers I've used are a mix of Karen Foster and.. I think... Once Upon a Time from DCWV. I've had them both for a long long long time. I matted them onto brown cardstock and machine stitched them down. My card base is kraft. 

For the sand I used E50 & 51 and for the shadows I used E53, blended out at the edges with E51. I also added shadow from Notti, the coins and the jewels on the sand. All of my metal embellishments are from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology range and the jute is from my stash.

Copics Used:
Skin - E00, 01, 11. R20
Hair - E42, 43, 44
Pants - BG70, 72 & 75
Shirt - YR21, 23, &24 with YR18 for the darkest areas. 
Treasure Chest - E31, 33, 35. C1, 3, 5 & 8. 
Treasure- Y02, YR 17, C1
