Some Groovy Inspiration for You..

It's Thursday, so it's time to get your Groove on with the Groovy Gurlz, and this weeks challenge is an Inspiration Challenge, all you have to do is create a card/project inspired by this gorgeous picture.  Look at all those beautiful colours, I'm sure you'll find it as inspiring as I did...
For my card i used the gorgeous Dragon Hugs image from the Mystic Beauties Collection.  This is quite a detailed image, which gave me lots of opportunity to use different colours from the inspiration piece. I coloured the image with Prismacolour pencils and ordourless mineral spirits; I put a thick line of colour around the edge of the area i was colouring and then with a paper stump, i blended the colour towards the centre of the area. I added more colour to the areas i wanted to create shadows in, and then blended them gently to keep that soft feel.

With the image being so detailed, I decided to keep the rest of my card fairly simple.  I cut the image out and mounted it onto a piece of green cardstock before mounting that onto a black card base.  As a finishing touch i added some golden star gems.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my card, why don't you hop along to the StampInsanity site, to check out the awesome creations from the rest of the Groovy Gurlz, and to get full details of the challenge, and how you can win some beautiful StampInsanity images.
