CAS Colours & Sketches #230 - Colour Challenge

Each member of the DT has the opportunity to host the CAS Colours and Sketches Blog challenges and July is my month to host!  I'll have two colour and two sketches for you to try your hand at this month.

This week is a colour challenge and I thought a couple of the new 2017-18 SU! In-colors should come out to play this week.  We're using Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  Feel free to substitute colours (like I have done with my background color).  You may also use other neutrals in your card design.

You can find the rules here on the CC&S Blog.

My card features a mermaid from the creative hand of Tammy Seimers-Thompson, the artist behind A Day for Daisies.  This one is a stamp, but if you like her style, Tammy has thousands of digis for sale in her shop.  My mermaid's colored with Copics.  The sentiment is pieced together from a couple of different sets;  one is an SU! set Labeler Alphabet.

I hope you will come by the CC&S Blog to see what the rest of the DT has for you this week and then make some time to create something!  Hope to see you in the gallery!
