Nautical/By the Sea - Simon Monday Challenge

Hi there all who are waiting for a new 


Oh yes! It's summertime! 
And there is a $50 voucher to win and spend 
at Simon Says Stamp Store! Don't wait and join us!

This week I made a summer panel with all the underwater creatures using the amazing Nautical Blueprints by Tim Holtz (thank you Lorraine!)
After trimming and folding the panel, I covered it with a layer of gesso and treated with Distress Inks melted with water and Distress SprayStain. I put some natural color twine under the images just to give kind of freestyle windy look. 

I fell in love with Blueprints stamps (thanks again, Lols!) and watercoloring them. They are just perfect for that! I wanted to keep the whole project into sea and sand colors. I used blue and turquoise for outer images and yellow and brown for inner ones. There are grey and black touches to make some kind of shadow as well.
