Liliana Mermaid

      Today I'm sharing the first of my #Conie Fong DT cards for the month of May.  It features Liliana Mermaid as well as some fancy die cut work.  Don't forget that each month we have two challenges running; one is for colored images only and the other is for completed projects.  You do have to use Conie Fong images but there are so many of those and you're sure to fall in love with several once you go and explore the Etsy store.  :-D

     The image set includes Liliana both with and without a water lily and my original plan was to merge both images for use on one card.  However, I had forgotten I was working with jpg images, not a png images, and the plan went awry.  So I used one of the printed images and will save the other one for a future project.  The sentiment is also from Conie Fong but not from the Liliana Mermaid set and I honestly don't remember which set has that sentiment.  Sorry

     The best part about this card is that it's made with scraps and bits, both paper and CS.  Even the burlap ribbon for the bow was a left over scrap which I found in my scrap basket.  There was just enough of it to tie that bow and trim the dove-tail ends.
