Normally it takes me ages to get around to colouring digis that are kindly shared for free by some artists, but as soon as I saw this one day giveaway by Faery Ink I just had to put everything else on hold and get her coloured as I love her so much!
I coloured her with a combination of Copics and Promarkers, and created the background using a technique I learned from the great colouring classes at Kit and Clowder. If you want to improve your colouring skills then I recommend these classes so much. They have helped my confidence grow massively where my colouring is concerned.
I created most of the embellishments myself using my melt pot. I haven't had that out for a long time so it was fun to play again. To make her really sparkle I went over her tail and wings with a clear Wink of Stella pen. I teamed her with some sea themed papers from my stash and a few stickers and gems. The sentiment is a stamp I got free in a magazine.
