Flowers on the Beach by Conie Fong

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  As MerMay continues, here is a mermaid card that I created some time ago but never posted. As many of you probably know, I just love mermaids! This cutie is Flowers on the Beach by Conie Fong.   My DT card:

I coloured her with Copic markers and added quite a number of embellishments.  The seashells and tiny glass bottle (with fairy dust inside) are real, and the flowers are handmade.  I also included yellow netting.  Finally, I applied Glossy Accents around the image.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you all again soon.  Have a happy day, Lori xx
