Corrosive Challenge

Happy Sunday! Time for another Corrosive Challenge! This time our challenge is "Cute as a Button", use a cute image and at least one button on your project.

Our super fun sponsor is Saturated Canary!!!! I love Krista's images, and she kindly let the DT select an image to use, I picked FIN-tastic. There were shark sitings on the beach where we stayed in Cape Cod on vacation this summer, so this image just called to me, lol! Such a sweet and fun image to color, I added plenty of sparkle to water. I also glazed her eyes and the shark fin.

My sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #167. Another wonderful sketch this week!

Love this, Kathy! This is one of my favorite Saturated Canary images. Awesome sparkle in the water, and you know how I feel about glossy accents, lol. That fish paper and those waves are perfect! Love those clear stickers too. Amazing creation as always!
