For this image I chose to keep the colour palette simple, blues and greens. I coloured the mermaid with my Chameleon pens. I don’t have any colour tops so I just stood one colour pen on top of the other to infuse the colours so that the transition would be pretty seamless. I love the way that the pens infuse and of course depending on how long you hold the pens together for you get a quicker or slower transition of colour.
I found some coordinating paper to cut the shells out to make a border. The shells are one of the standard cutting files on the scan n cut CM900. The shells made a border around a rectangle I had watered and splashed with distress inks to try and create a sea background. I then wanted to add some dimension and waves so I added two strips of red line tape and ruffled some ribbon along it. Finally I added a stamped sentiment.
