Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! Today it is time for a new challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. Make sure you play along, you could win a gift card to the store!!!

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 didn’t write down the colours for this one! Sorry about that I need to get in a habit of doing that for everything again, but I did use a no lines technique on him. Then I masked him off and created the background using my distress inks.
