HDH094 Menacing Mermaids Challenge

Happy Tuesday is a short post, but I wanted to share an envelope I made for Macabre Mondays at this was my take on this very cool challenge (love love love mermaids).....ENJOY!!!!

(click on photos for bigger view)

I took an 11"X14" manila envelope, folded it where I needed the crease to be, and started layering rubber stamps to make a scene.,..I really don't care for the "to box", the black squiggle's is suppose to be a black cat...but since I've had way to much coffee this morning, I kind of smudged it abit....ok way used my very dusty stipple brushes along with Rangers nibs and cosmetic applicators to color everything in....
Rubber stamps used are:
Smeared Ink--Mermaid
StampScapes--brookside boulders, crooked limb, tiki huts
Rubber Stampede--fern leaf
Inkadinkado--web, crows and black cat
Studio G--bat
Alexa Stamping--grass (bottom)
See D's--quote boxes
here's the back side where the "from" will be.... *********
Well peeps, I'm suppose to be painting today and instead I'm in here....shhh, don't tell hubby...I just have to do double time so many hours in a day......Thanks Minions for such a fun challenge....if ya get a chance, stop on over and play along this week....we all have a mermaid in our stash somewhere....Hugs from a cloudy Charm City.....

Two challenges in a row?! Don't get my hopes up that you'll be playing more, maybe every week? No pressure. I just love your take on the challenges and the overall look of art.
Now get back to painting!
