She Sells Seashells

Hey there!  I'm back today with  Jasmine's birthday card!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend!  This is my very first time using an image from the extremely talented artist JadeDragonne.  She can be found on deviantArt HERE and Facebook HERE.  Her images are amazing and the best part- she gives them to colorists for free!  This image is called Mermaid Pinup.  I colored her with Copics and fussy cut her.  This awesome sketch is last week's The Deconstructed Sketch No. 106.  I took a little liberty with the bow element and replaced it with flowers.  Papers are Little Yellow Bicycle - Splash: Making Waves and Aqua Spot.  I used the Crowns Circles Nestabilities from Spellbinders behind her and placed a flat back pearl on each spoke.    



This was such a fun project!  I love the thrill of discovering a new artist, and I have a feeling I will be coloring more of JadeDragonne's work very soon!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E31, R32, RV02, RV10, YG03, YG11, YG95, Y28, YR15, YR24, B00, B32, B34, BG0000, BG10, BG70, BG72).

Beautiful card Regan. I love the image and am going to have to check Jade's blog or fb page. Beautiful coloring, beautiful design. I was wondering where you found her rules, everytime I saw them they were in another language.
