Hello, everyone, Aeryn here! Today I have a special card for you using Cordelia the Mermaid. She's one of my faves in the store and I hope you can see why. Isn't she lovely? I had her sitting on my desk for a few days, letting me mull over just how I wanted to colour her up to best show off her features, when I woke up and said "black and green!" I know what you're thinking "black and green? that's crazy talk!" But if one has to learn anything in this creative game it's to always try something NEW! I'd never done or seen a black mermaid, let alone one with green skin, but there you have it. Cordelia was just the girl to try it on. I wanted to mix a bit of purple in with the black, just to keep it more feminine, but to also evoke sort of an Ursula the Sea Witch feeling to her. I have no idea why... but I think it worked and that's the important part. Once I got Cordelia coloured up I coloured around her with my Derwent Inktense pencils, took a water pen to the pencil work, and set to making her a card.
I really hope you like her!
