Life On The Ocean Waves!

Summer is here and this week on the  Monday Challenge we are heading down to the water with a Nautical/By The Sea theme. I am lucky enough to live on a small island surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea, and like nothing more than snorkeling and admiring the bright colors of the fish and corals. I also enjoy a nice day out on a boat, bobbing along in the waves and enjoying the sea breeze while sipping a long cool glass of something sparkly and refreshing. We will be looking forward to seeing which option you choose for your project!

Once you have made your creation just go ahead and upload it into the linky on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

  1. I really loved all of the great dimension used on the first project along with the different choices of materials.

  2. Such fantastic creations! I love the look of the ocean in the first one, it has such texture and depth.

  3. Awesome projects! I am amazed with how the waves were created in the first card! Love the nautical theme! The tag is pretty cool too! Love them all…so creative! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. These are gorgeous projects! I especially love the lighter blues. While I adore projects and cards with a light and airy feel, I’m really digging the newer, lighter, almost whimsical, grunge. Not quite steampunk, not quite grunge… But, a definite nod to these two styles. Love it, and I can’t wait to try my own version.

  5. PERFECT timing
    … I have just added an anchor die to my stash, can’t wait to give it a workout!!!

  6. Great projects, and I just realized I don’t own any nautical stamps or dies. Guess I’ll have to change that soon!
