Serena with Her Pearl

 It's Great Impression Friday again and today I have a spiffy mermaid card using G334 Serena and Her Pearl.  I'm really enjoying creating all the different underwater scenes using Great Impression's beautiful Sea themed stamps.  I could sit on a beach for hours, and I have, just watching the ocean.  It is the most peaceful thing I know.

This underwater scene is a different take from my last one.  This time I used lots of white with my scene.

 I feel that all the white really makes my scene pop as do the bubbles background mat.  (Couldn't resist the pun.)

This card actually glitters and gleams even in low light.  I added Crystal Stickles to all the mat bubbles, the fish bubbles, the meraids hair and tail, gold Stickles to frame the scene and the first mat and to the sand, and finally purple Stickles to the school of fish.  That's a lot of Stickles.  To finish the bling I used liquid pearl for the pearl in Serena's hand.
