Just a quick card today using another image from Delicious Doodles. I love how she is beautiful and frightening at the same time. I gave her gems for her eyes to add to the mythical effect.
I had never heard of Selkies before finding this image so I googled them to see how they were different from mermaids. Here is what the top paragraph of Wikipedia said
"Selkies (also known as silkies or selchies) are mythological creatures found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal). Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend apparently originated on the Orkney and Shetland Islands."
