They're remarkable beings, mermaids

Well, it's Pink Saturday and today's creation is mostly  pink  but I must admit quite a bit of pale blue. My inspiration this week is our gorgeous sunsets here in lowcountry. Yes they are pink and blue and totally gorgeous! So back to Pink Saturday....I do so love visiting Pink Saturday because there are all sorts of blogggers there not just papercrafters. I love to visit and see all the "pinkness" everyone has. This week my dear friend Lynne of Adorn is the guest pinkie! Please do visit and also  do thank you Beverly for hosting.

This little tag below started with a pale blue painted tag sprinkled with glitter. I overstamped 100 Proof Press sea horses #1579 as if they were swimming in the deep. I added the pretty glamourous mermaids from Retro Cafe Art Mermaid Collage sheet on layers of fabric shells and blue tulle netting. Some pale pink star fish, pink glittery bubbles, rhinestones and Stickles accents embellished the piece. The sentiment from a favorite fiction book says "They're remarkable beings, ephemeral jewels of the water world."

Hope you will meet a remakable being this week.
artfully yours, gerri

    I'm so glad I stopped by. I just love mermaid creations. I have several I am planning to create on my work table. These tags came out absolutely lovely. The sparkle and color palette make them even prettier.

    As much as I am not drawn to blue in life I do love the combination of the dusky rose pink and pale blue, it is so appealing at this time of the year.
    Wonderful vintage feel to your tag.
