Welcome to the Mermaid Lagoon

Today I'm sharing another Sweet November mermaid as part of the 31 day coloring challenge (#mermay2023).  

This is Treasure Tempestwind and Eddy.

After sizing and printing, I started my coloring with her hair in shades of purple. (BV08, BV17, BV13, BV02, BV00)

Next I used shades of red for her bra and fin. (R39, R29, R27) The black multi-liner was used for the spots.

Then a little gold for the hair adornment and belt pearls.... (YR23, Y28, Y15)

And blue grey's for Eddy. (BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20, R20)

 For the cave background, I looked at how others had drawn or used the background image available for purchase.  I added my hand drawn cave and used most of the same colors for the rock formation.  I added BG75 and BG72 to the center to give it depth. 

I used a 5 1/2" x 6" card base and covered it with a muted green patterned paper. I die cut the image using Carnation Crafts, Shabby Squares, then mounted it in the center.  I added the sentiment at the bottom right and finished my design with the gold twine and mermaid scale charm. 

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
