Surf & turf spark

This is for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  It is an inspiration challenge using the photo below.  I've used the colours and the texture of the painted wood. You know pink is hard for me but managed to put a splash in (it was probably easier because I was in the pink-friendly home of my friend Jill Grace at the time).  Kim had suggested we could put some red in - but I just couldn't put the red and pink together this time (red & pink is harder than just pink). Just got this cute Surf and Turf set so had to use it (I'm not usually into cute but cute sea creatures.... I just couldn't resist).  It's hard to see but I put Diamond Glaze on the fish eye balls.

Enough complaining about the pink.  Thanks to Kim for a fun challenge!  Hope you have a great week and thanks for dropping by.
