Blue and green for July

Happy July everyone, summer is really in full swing now. I got home from our Sicily holiday last night where we had a glorious week.
It's time for our next challenge over at Country View and Corrie has chosen the fun theme of blue and green.
I saw plenty of blue and green in the gorgeous sea at Taormina. I will share some more photos soon but here is a taster.
 Corrie would like to see blues and greens as the main colours in your entries. Flesh colours are also allowed (I checked that) as I knew just the set of stamps that I wanted to use. The brand new Mythical Mermaid set from Visible image which you can buy here on the CVC website. Remember that UK postage is FREE so you will not find this set cheaper anywhere on line. 
I made a blue background using blue shades of distress ink on watercolour paper.

 I stamped out all the stamps in the set and coloured them in shades of blue and green. I even  coloured Miss Mermaid's hair blue and green using glitter pens. 
  Don't the dolphins look fun in blue.
 I added some waves to the background and also used some nautical themed dies to die cut greenery and scenery. 
I then put my blue and green mermaid card together.

with a couple of close ups;

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Creative moments 3/3 anything goes
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Craft catz 1/3 anything goes

You can enter our July "Blue and green " challenge as many times as you like and combine with other challenges. There is also a £20 crafting voucher up for grabs to the lucky randomly selected winner to spend over on the Country View Crafts on line store. Remember that UK postage and packing is absolutely FREE! All the details for the July challenge can be found here.

My 2nd dose of inspiration is on the 27th.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I am back again today as it is also time for my Monday Visible Image post.

Bye for now,
