Mermaid with Message In A Bottle

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun card to share for the carnival theme over at Live and Love Crafts... and I have abstracted this theme a little and have decided to do something whimsical and reminiscent of an old mythical gypsy carnival... a mermaid theme! Here is my project featuring an image by Aurora Wings called Mermaid with Message in a Bottle.

Do you want to learn to colour her up? Well I certainly had fun... and will be teaching how to colour her in my Skin and Hair Colouring Classes launching NEXT WEEK!! YEAH!!! Here are the copic colours that I used for now :)

Coloured using No Lines Technique
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Scales: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Hair: E53, E43, E57, B00, BG05, BG09
Yellow Accents: Y11, Y15, Y17, E15, E18
