31 Days of Halloween - Day 8

Mermaids and creepy and me, OH MY!  

Oh, there you are!  Today we are viewing something quite fun.  Alex loves mermaids.  She loves the gorgeous and the fun and all, BUT what she really loves is the lore of the mermaid and the siren and the power they wield.  Not the touchy feely nice mermaid, but the one drawing sailors to their death (yeah, she is twisted....- and do NOT tell her vampires sparkle in the sun, she is quite adamant that they incinerate.)  Today she has just such a mermaid creation that I get to share with you.

This mermaid is from Stampotique and one of three different ones she has images of.  The fabulous skeleton fish in the background are from SCACD (and they also have matching stencils you will probably see used later this month).  The mermaid and background are both colored using Distress Inks.

I hope you are seeing everything ALL the Wicked Bloggers have to offer this month.  I know Alex has loved seeing them and the creativity everyone is sharing.  Leaving a bit of love for them is appreciated as well.

See you tomorrow for some more insight into Alex's twisted mind.

Happy Halloween!
Edgar

Oh wow, I absolutely LOVE this tag! Those stampotique stamps are wonderful, aren't they? Great use of the stencil in the background, too.

That creepy looking mermaid would have to use her song to attract sailors.

Your background is very well done.

Wicked cool mermaid tag, love it! Yep, Edgar, its true, vampires should not sparkle, they most definitely go "poof" in the daylight!
