Magical Siren

I'm on summer holidays and enjoying some quiet colouring time. I started by creating the left side by smooshing Distress Inks onto watercolour paper and once dried I use a fishscale stencil with white ink. From there I used the Saturated Canary image 'Siren' and coloured her to match the paper and to create the whole scene. I finished it off with a cluster of embellies and some texture paste to create the waves and Wink of Stella on the tail. I absolutely adore how she turned out!!!
