Is that why you love me?

For todays 100 Proof Press DT post here is a pink mermaid collage. I used the 100 proof press stamp  of shells and stamped it in pink ink. There so many types of stamps by this company, I know you will find something you will like too. You know that I love mermaids and I am sure I will be seeing many of them during my vacation at the beach, so that was the inspiration of this piece.

To make these Victorian inspired  mermaid, I used a torso of the lovely lady with the fab from Artchix Studio and added my own tail out of patterned paper. The background is stamped and crinkled foil medallions frame our lovely mermaid lady. I created two accent pieces with a with pink pearls,  silver flourishes, pink Stickles. The entire piece is trimmed with lace, pearls and buttons. The sentiment says..."I am one of them...is that why you love me?"

Hope you find one of them this week.
artfully yours, gerri
