Mermaid shaker

How cute is she!!!!?? Oh my, I just love her.
I love that so many artists are flooding us with mermaid images right now. I've got a dozen or more waiting to be colored and created with.
I just had to get this one done right up.
This is from Gerda Stiner Designs.  I'm fairly new to her work and I love her style.
I created a shaker card with this image.

 I colored her hair and tail using patterns from my sil program then colored the rest of the image in with my pencils.  I cut her separate along with her hair and tail so they are all pieced back together and she is mounted with foam tape to the background.
 I used tiny gems in pale blue and cyrstal for the shaker elements to mimic bubbles to match along with the image.  For the "sand" I used some chunky embossing powder and glued it along the bottom.
