Color Hues #60

It's mid month and time for a new colour combination at Color Hues. Here's my take.

I thought of the turquoise and blue of a Mediterranean Sea for my card, though I haven't seen too many mermaids! 
On a panel of white card I inked all over with Peacock Feathers DI and using a piece of scrap paper as a guide, I inked in some Salty Ocean DI to create the effect of sunlight passing through the water. My Whimsey Stamps Goldie mermaid was stamped in the bottom left corner then again onto some Copic friendly card. Using a mix of blues and turquoises, I coloured the image and fussy cut both the snail and Goldie. As I was going to place her over the original stamping I didn't bother cutting out all the twiddly bits, they would be there once I glued my coloured mermaid and snail over! I used a small paint brush to add more bubbles and outlined them with a black fine liner, the sentiment is from MFT's GillFriend. 
The frame was sitting in my bits box, so I added the scene behind it, trimmed any excess away and then added the whole panel to an A6 note card. 
I think this will be going to my Grandson's party stash for one of his many parties!
So that's it from me but please check out the rest of the team and our GD here for some more fab ideas.
Hope to see you in our Color Hues gallery soon!
