This week’s challenge theme is all about by the sea. Think beach, critters, sand, seashells, etc….. The Design Team is using Fancy Pants products and I am using some of their adorable patterned paper!!  The supplies are listed at the end of the post…. Here is my take on the challenge!


I combined Fancy Pants with the adorable Lawn Fawn sea critter.   I decided to use the waves to create the birds in the sky. Just flip the waves image upside down, ink up part of the stamp and voila… Birds… The background was created using Design memory Craft Gelatos and Gesso. Here is a closer look:


The wonderfully amazing and sweet Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!
