Come, my lovely!
Here is my offering for the current Stampotique challenge which is black, white and a hint of colour.
I ummed and ahhed a while and eventually this little underwater scene came to mind. Well, a Mermaid would not have a dog as a companion, (maybe a dog fish) but my Mermaid's pet is this delightful octopus and hence she is calling "Come, my lovely" Both these images are by Daniel Torrente.
I set her floating on this music score which is another Stampotique stamp, a row of tags stamped with music. I felt this appropriate since mermaids are renowned for the most alluring songs to entice fishermen to follow them.
I have just spent ages unsuccessfully trying to find this image on Stampotique. If anyone knows the artist I will be able to credit them.
I also found these beautiful sticks that were blown down in the wind and covered in this wonderful lichen. Perfect, I thought, to suggest a seaweed at the bottom of the ocean.
