Make it Colourful {Reflection in water} ~ my water needs a little work!!!!


Hi there! This is a birthday card I have made for my niece. She'll be 7 next week...my where has the time gone??
I have kept it simple as I know she will appreciate the picture (mermaids mad!!) & the colouring rather than a load of embellishments.

I have also made this card to go into Make it Colourful's challenge {Reflections in water}
I'm afraid my water needs a lot of work & I tried to do too much all at once. I wish I'd just stuck to the reflections instead of trying to do ripples...oh well better luck next time ha ha!!

My mermaid is sat on a little scene I have coloured myself with no actual image just a pencil drawing. So I had nothing to guide me except my pencil sketches. Came out quite well considering!!

I don't know if you can see in the pic but I have done her tail reflecting a little orange on the water, the stone reflecting some grey & a little pinky/red for the crab.

If you want to see better pics of reflections check out the Make it Colourful's wonderful design team's makes & don't forget they're celebrating all month because its Make it Crafty's first birthday!!

hugs Helen x x

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
