Hannah Lynn Maxine Mermaid - Copic Coloring Book

Please scroll down to the next post if you are here for our Operation Write Home Sticker Skip~

I discovered a new (to me) digital as well as rubber stamp artist recently that I have to share with you.  Her name is Hannah Lynn Disney, she's no relation to the Disney you may be thinking.  Her drawings are just wow and I've been having a really good time coloring them.

The photo above is the cover of my Copic coloring book and I'd like to share a peek inside my Copic coloring book with you today of a Hannah Lynn coloring page that I colored with Copic markers.  The images on my coloring book cover are by Bug A Boo Stamps.

I scanned and reduced the coloring page so it would fit in my Copic coloring book.  All the marker colors I've used are listed for my future reference and for you to see too.  I used Copic Blending Solution on the water behind her, spritzing it on with a spray mister bottle and overfilling a blender pen to get it to drip onto the blue and leave rings & I also just dotted some on with the marker.

You can find Hannah Lynn digital and rubber stamps at Crafts and Me, as well as her Etsy Store and her web site.  I've put links in each for you so you can go check out Hannah Lynn art for yourself!  I hope you like her as much as I do-

I looked at this last night after clicking in from Amber's Crafts & Stuff and thought I left a comment but guess not! Your coloring/painting skills are AMAZING. I would love for my work to even be 1% as good as yours....right now I'm happy to have moved from kindergarten level work to 2-3 grader's work!! I didn't realize you could have the WRONG water color paper. So that has helped. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration

Jan, you've made your Maxine Mermaid look fabulous in your Copic coloring book. What a valuable tool for Copic users! I still reference my first Copic Swatchbook that I made a few years ago. So glad to see your entry at Copic Creations. ~ Rose
