Mixed Media Monday - Mermaid

I tried it in both an ATC size (above) and a card size (below)...

I had a great time making these. The backgrounds were created using the Heated Pearls Technique on patterned turquoise paper. All trims are from Flights of Fancy Boutique. The image is a vintage photograph of Theda Bara (Circa. 1920s).
