Karleigh Sue Sexy Challenge- The Sea Can't Hold Me

Today see the start of a brand new sexy challenge over at Karleigh Sue Challenge Blog and this month the theme is 'Button Me Up'. I have a thing for all creatures mythical so couldn't resist using the beautiful mermaid digi called The Sea Can't Hold Me ( find her here).

I created the backing paper using Brusho paints to give a swirly water effect, and then added interest with a stencil and some salty ocean distress ink. The mermaid was coloured with promarkers. I added pearls, some coloured gravel, an anchor and some heart shaped buttons to the bottom of the ocean to add texture and interest. The sentiment is a stamp from Inkylicious and suited her perfectly. To finish the piece I embossed some frantage around it and mounted in a display frame to create an inspirational piece of art work. 

We would love to see your sexy makes this month. You don't have to use a KS image but may qualify for an extra prize if you do so why not browse the shop and treat yourself!

You can also join the KS Facebook Fan Page here if you would like to keep up to date and join in the fun stuff that's happening there.
