Some Odd Girl - Mermaid Queen

Hi guys! I'm back again, to share a card I made last night. It is a card, that I currently love, more than most, and I can't see myself parting with it, any time soon! I made it, to showcase on Some Odd Girl's Facebook Group - Paper Piecing Challenge
Here it is -
To start this card, I selected the Mermaid Queen Digital Stamp, from Some Odd Girl, printed her on my copic card stock, and on some copy paper. On the copy paper, once she was printed, I attached some patterned paper, and some vellum, and reprinted her. While that was printing, I started colouring the Mermaid's body, using my copic markers. I let the ink dry a short time on the vellum part of her tail, and while that was drying, coloured her tail in shades of green and blue, to give it a shimmer look on the patterned paper. I colour over a lot of my paper pieced sections, to give more dimension, to make the piece look less "flat". I then fussy cut the tail, and fins and attached them to my coloured mermaid. I did some stippling to give the appearance of sand, and used some stickles on her main tail fin, to give some sparkle!
The papers on this card are a mix of no-name papers and Lawn Fawn, I think her tail is from My Minds Eye (it was a scrap in my scrap draw). I added a sentiment, from another Some Odd Girl stamp set (which appears to be retired now). I added some more sparkle using a trio of silver sequins, and some glitter paper.
