Mermaid fantasy

I wanted to enter the current "under the sea" challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik, but found not a one mermaid type image from them in my digital files.   Well, I had to correct that, right, so went on a shopping expedition, and since this one's entitled "lilies commitment" and my name is Lillian, I felt she was calling me -- a reasonable justification for me spending money, right - haha.
I've colored her with prismas, using 3 shades of aqua from the waist down, and ending the tail with "mulberry", same as her top -- and, being a fantasy figure, I added a lot of stardust stickles, if you go in for a real close look - you may even need sunglasses, as you can also tell I used sparkly paper for most all my embellishments!
I've happily entered these challenges:

Brown Sugar - fairies and fantasy
Ching-Chou Kuik - under the sea (of course!)
Crafty Friends - AG
Di's Digi Designs - 2 or more patterned papers
Digi Doodle Studios - AG
Little Miss Muffet - AG
Mod Squad - water
Polkadoodles - AG
QKR Stampede - AG
