Marhaba means welcome in Morrocan

I had to use this picture when I saw it, it just spoke to me it said I am from Morroco,I know they are probably from New Jersey.  Anyway I printed out the picture, which I think I got at the note I said i think.
Anway I did the whole transfer thing, which turned out not that great but I liked it, I think it looks vintage .

Step: When you think of Morroco what colors do you think about? I thought, yellows, orange, reds
so I used some Studio G pigment inks, that i get a Michaels for a 1.50 , here it looks quite orange, but I fixed that up later.

3.  Next I decided it needed some rubons, I have had these rubons for ages, and thought they fit the project perfectly.  So I went for it and added them.

Step 4:  I then added some charcoal sticks

 Step 5:  With the charcoal I added red to their
lips, and pink to the checks, and black pen
around there eyes.

Last step I wanted to add words in the lower right, and as you
will notice I took out one of the ladies, but it still looks okay.
Well what do you think does it look morrocan

The last detail of course was the Marhaba which
means  Welcome
