Ariela Mermaid

I am SO EXCITED!!! I tackled the May 2017 Markers class from Kit and Clowder and I cannot believe how it turned out! Yes, there are little things here and there that aren't like the instructor's, Alyce Keegan, but still, for just a beginner, I think I did pretty well! Alyce takes you step-by-step through each piece of the image, so it is not SO overwhelming. The videos are yours forever, so you can watch, re-watch as many times as you want, and you can use the techniques on other images. The image is Ariela Mermaid from Conie Fong on Etsy, and it is currently on sale, so grab her quick! I decided to use the image for my sister's birthday card, so I made a step card, added some ocean-type embellishments, tulle, paper straws and a little sun clip at the top. The copic marker colors I used were all from Alyce's class, except for a little green I used in the flowers on her headband (I decided to make them leaves rather than different colored flowers). The bubbles are outlined with a Uniball Signo white pen, as instructed by Alyce. Take a look at the outcome:
Skin E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, RV21
Hair RV02, RV06, RV66; B63, B66, B69
Lips R20, E04

Water BG10, B00, BG53, BG45, B24, B28, B29, BG49

Coral/Shells Yellow Y11, Y35, YR15
Coral Pink RV02, RV04, RV66
