Merfolk, with Lots of Scales

I participated in a Merfolk altered art swap with RetroCafeArt.  I had a lot of fun creating my own king and queen of the crafty sea.  I knew I wanted them to have scales on the bottom, so I searched until I found just the right stamp for the job (which also happens to be one of my favorite 100 Proof Press Stamps).  I stamped, colored and cut out the lockets from this stamp too many times to count! I painted the bodies, and did a little stamping on them.  I found some extra molded faces on my table, and they worked out pretty well for the heads.  It was a fun project and I look forward to my next art swap!
