Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #40 – Photo Inspiration
Happy 4th of July to those in America! It’s time for a new challenge at Open-Minded Crafting. Today we are doing a photo inspiration challenge. What is great about this type of challenge is the artistic freedom left open to you and your interpretation of the photo. I sure hope you’ll join us because this is the second to the last challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Challenges blog.
Here is our photo:
Again, we have some really fantastic sponsors who are offering very generous prizes. All you need to do is enter a card, or three for a chance to win. The last day to enter for this challenge is July 17th. Here is a list of the sponsors and their prizes:
My design team inspiration today features a Kenny K image called, “Da Bomb”. She looks like she may be up to a little trouble, but was sure fun to color as so many of KennyK’s images are. I used Copic Markers and fussy cut her out, making sure to use a black permanent marker on the edges to give that extra detail. I pulled out the orange in the photo as well as the flowers for my inspiration.
The background is stamped with Paper Smooches “I Heart Art” splats and then stenciled with a mesh using distress ink. I then used a brick embossing folder to give that “wall” type feeling. She is standing on a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle and to complete the card I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches and added watercolor flowers and sequins.
I hope you stop by Open-Minded Crafting Challenge, to check out all the other design team inspiration and enter our nearly final challenge.
