This weeks challenge theme is Mermaids! One of my favourite things to colour (okay everything is one of my favourite things to colour. I coloured up Florence Finbottom for today’s card!

KKS Florence Finbottom

I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and spent hours working on this no lines mermaid. I love how she came out and that the background is like bubbles filled in to allow there to be lots of white space. I did not keep track of the coloured pencils used for this one as I just kept layering and colouring and did most of it outside enjoying a fire.

I cut a mask for the top of the cardstock and inked it up with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. Is it not amazing how solid you can get that colour on Kraft cardstock! I did create a bit of a shadow using a grey coloured pencil. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set as the image!
