Challenge: Nautical/By The Sea



Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Flora and Fauna Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too. Please scroll down to see who are in the spotlight and who is the lucky winner!

This week the challenge is

Nautical/By The Sea

Summer is here and what nicer place to be than down by the coast! Whether you enjoy a boat trip out on the open waves or maybe you prefer to dip your toes in the sea while enjoying a refreshing ice cream. Which option do you prefer to use for your inspiration? We will be looking forward to seeing what you make!

Although we do accept all styles this really is the challenge to get out your inks and paints and have a go at a more mixed media, artsy style. The main thing is to stretch your boundaries and  have fun!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
