StampInsanity 76: Photo a Mojo

It’s time for a new StampInsanity challenge! This week, we are trying to inspire you by choosing one of two photos. I chose the second…this is what it looks like:

Beautiful colors and makeup, huh? I love the feathers on her eyelashes. I decided to work with one of my favorite SI images, Kassandra.

So of course, I pulled the colors directly from the photo and used my markers to color Kassandra in.

I’ve never given her black hair before, and I think she looks fabulous with it! Aren’t the other colors rad, too?

As I mentioned before, I love the feathers on the model’s eyelashes. So I took out 2 pallets of my Petal Point ink by Color Box, and swept the ink from the center out. I used turquoise, pink and lime green. Then I embossed it with clear powder for a bit of sheen and texture. My sentiment is from StampInsanity of course. I added only some turquoise to the bottom of it. That’s it! It came together really quickly. I didn’t do any extra embellishing, as I didn’t think it needed it, since the background is so pretty.

So? Do you want to play along? Then visit the StampInsanity blog to see more awesome creations, plus the other inspiration photo. I hope you also visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
