Under the Sea

This is what happens under the sea when nobody is looking - a marital drama? love tryst gone wrong?

Mitä meren pinnan alla tapahtuu kun kukaan ei ole katsomassa? Merenneitorouva haluaa pois väljähtyneestä suhteesta,  merenherra  ei oikein ymmärrä tätä ja kala-parka heidän välissään pelkää pahinta - mutta ei huomaa koukkua joka keikkuilee houkuttvasti...

She needs some air - but where will she go?  Can she really ever leave the sea?

The fish is caught in between the two. He senses there is trouble ahead - but does he notice the hook that is dangling and baiting him?

And the merman -smoking his pipe, enjoying his beer and only ever thinking of his next meal... he doesn't seem too fine-tuned to the lady's wishes now does he?
Oh, aren't we all caught in our little nets of love and indifference!

Influenced by the chick lit novel I am currently reading - Catherine Alliott: Rose Meadows regrets...  but made for Stampotique challenge.

Background was stamped with three different stamps, bubbles, trees (which mimic waterplants, I used the top part of the tree only) and bracken / fern stamp, also great for water plant.
Background was blue cardstock (cereal package) which was only sanded to get the transparent, watery feel.

Entering this into:
