Menacing Mermaids

Today's Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog is Menacing Mermaids, and we want to see the darker side of those underwater creatures. Barb put it wonderfully: "Let's see those terrifying temptresses from the formidable & foul fathoms!" I used Barbara Jensen's Little Mermaid image, which you can buy as a digi stamp HERE or as a tube HERE. I've used the tube here, so the wonderful colouring is NOT my own, it was already done.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
The Deconstructed Sketch - sketch 6
A Spoon Full of Sugar - splish splash
Pile It On - show some metal
Craft Your Days away - monchrome
Cute Card Thursday - use birthstone colours. This time I've used blue topaz
Take A Word - fantasy
Totally Stampalicious - something old and something new. My old items are the chains, and the new items are the brick paper (made for this piece) and a technique to display transparent glass on a digital piece, which I'm really pleased with :)
Simon Says Stamp and Show - metal
Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air - photo inspiration. I chose to focus on the beautiful colours and the glass.
My Grafico Challenges - anything goes
