StampInsanity #7: Inspiration Pic

It’s Thursday again! Which can only mean one thing… It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we challenge you to work with this inspiration picture:

Pretty freakin’ cool right? I love the look of the makeup (on the model and off) and that jewelry is so fantastic! But those colors are really what inspired me…

Electric-Butterfly1

Ok… so my blue is a little off… but you get the idea right??? Originally, I was going to focus on those bulls-eye jewelry; hence the use of my Nesties. But then I came across the other paper I used here… and it just came together in a totally different way! Which is totally fine by me, sometimes too much planning isn’t good right? Take a closer look at my girl Maddie:

Electric-Butterfly2

I used my beloved colored pencils once again… and I love how she looks. Isn’t that a rockin’ dress???

Electric-Butterfly3

Here you can see all of the dimension on the card. The extra swirl is cut out from the same Cuttlebug D’Vine Swirl pattern in the large orange rectangle.

Now it’s your turn! The Groovy Gurlz want you to play along with us! And if you do, you can win some of Beth’s amazing digi’s! Just upload your creations at the StampInsanity blog. Plus, you can sport this groovy button on your blog so everyone knows that you like to join the insanity!!!
