Siren of Pearls

I've been fooling around trying to figure out how to merge digi files and although this is my first attempt, I'm quite happy with the result.  The images are Make it Crafty and I think they are so very cute!  The mermaid is called Siren of Pearls and I sat her on the Clam Shell.  The images are coloured with Copics and then Icovered her fins and the shell with Diamond Stickles.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Birthday Letter Seals which I stamped onto white paper and then cut both it and another pink one using Whimsy's Double Scallop Tag Die (love the shape of this die).  The flowers were cut using a Joy Crafts Flower die and the leaves with Martha Stewart's Oak Leaf Punch.  I added some pearls for the flower centrers and some dew drops around the image, thinking they would look like bubbles.
