S is for Siren

Hello.  Welcome.  Just a quick post for another altered playing card.



I kept this one pretty simple.  I used two mdf pieces from Things to Alter, the small mermaid and the circle flourish.  I have coloured with distress inks.  Mustard Seed hair went yellow.  Blueprint Sketch skin looking a little smokey.  Mermaid Lagoon tail looking very green.  Interesting.  I strategically added a small shell and the dictionary definition from OED.  I am looking at the second definition - dangerously fascinating woman - but maybe that shell has multiple uses........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. Perfect finish to this fortnight's entry. The strategic use of the shell made it enjoyable to find. At this rate, you will have a full deck of playing cards altered in no time.
