Happiness Always

This is for Anyone for Anya's June sketch and Paper Sundae's Sundae Bar challenges.  For the Sundae Bar we have to use at least two of the following: purple, gems, wings, paper piercing.  I got three of the four in by using purple on her top, pearls in her hair, and piercing the image.
The base is Whisper White cardstock with layers of Basic Grey and water B&T papers.  I embossed the Whisper White in the swirls folder, alternating between the embossed and debossed sides.  The image is Mermaid Anya from TGF and is colored in watercolor pencils with accents of Sukura Stardust gel pen.  I cut her bodice, arms, face and part of her hair in two layers, then added mini pearls to the hair.  The image is cut out using deckled rectangle Nestabilities, then pierced at opposite corners.  The sentiment is from SU's Whimsical Words and is stamped in Dove Grey Staz-On.  I added a safety pin and tied a bit of jute twine before mounting with a dimensional.  The mini bottle is from Tim Holtz.  I used a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped with "faded script" stamp from Stampabilities in Brown Bag.  I distressed the edges and inked in Chestnut Roan and Charcoal cat's eye chalks, then rolled into a scroll and placed in bottle.  I used a bit of liquid glass to seal the cork and attach to the card, adding a scrap of jute twine to the bottle.  Thanks for looking!  April
