Silly Mermaids

"Mermaids" is a swap I'm hosting this month at MailArtByDesign. I do enjoy these mythical creatures and these are the cards I made as my contribution. I played with a few ideas and then decided to go simple and silly (hence the little printed quotes on each card). The female images are clipart with the legs lopped off. I made the "tails" using paper I cut freehand to fit. The little flower brads were the closest thing I had to starfish, and I dug for about 45 minutes in my cancelled postage bin for some stamps related to water or the ocean. The backgrounds are recycled calendar pages of shells. My hope is that these cards might bring a smile to whoever receives them! More art soon...
