Simon Says: Nautical on the Monday Challenge










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

We also have a special challenge for children between the ages of 2 and 16! CLICK HERE or on the logo to go directly to the challenge page



Nautical
definition: of or relating to sailors, ships, or navigation:

Many of our friends have spent their summer vacation on board cruise ships, some have been boating on lakes, and some have been sailing across one of the seven seas, we would like you to cruise along with us and create something with voyages into the unknown in mind.

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

Please pop by to see what Simo, our guest designer, and the DT have made for our inspiration! 

I decided to to create something 'Astro-Nautical' using some of the new products in the  'Encouraging Words' Release. 


 I blended Fired Brick, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans Oxide Inks and then spritzed and splattered with water and white gesso. 


I also used a 'You're A Star' and Space Journey Craft Dies to complete my ' Astro-Nautical' scene. 


and I finished the inside



Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too





You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
