Happy Easter & Magical Mermaid

I finished colouring my mermaid and decided in the end to use for a card. It's a
large card but will make someone happy.

First up we have this cute little rabbit, a new digital from Mo's. As I didnt have much in the way of Easter stamps I couldn't resist as it was half price on release day.

Coloured with copics, very easy and quick. I did two actually but only have one here.
I did this one in C's and the other in 'W' tones. I will put both together next post so you can see the difference in the greys.

To add a bit of kick to the card I have run washi tape down each side. Isn't this one magic.
Rainbow colours in metallic foil, yumm.

I added a layer of yellow fun foam to lift this layer slightly and it looks nice
side on with that line of bright yellow. Sentiment comes with the image.

Here's my mermaid all finished. Boy that was a lot of hair and trying to work out where the shadows were meant to be was a job and a half but I was happy in the end. Decided to do her tail in greens
and tried doing the colourless blender pen dots but they just didnt show up in the patterned scales so ended up adding lots of Wink of Stella for sparkle.

Hard to see the sparkle but it certainly got Elysha's tick of approval ' ohh mum she wunful'

Added her to a pale green/blue cardbase with just a slight trim off at the bottom. Added the 
Magical' sentiment from Stamplorations and then some 'bubbles' white and very pale blue sparkle
enamel dots (more mum, more... yes that perfect).

Incredible colouring Aileen - you have got some lovely depth from your shading! Beautiful CAS designs. The real winner here is the washi tape though - totally amazing richness of colour in those metallic shades. Love it. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
