Arrow IC07 - Grand Central Artwork (Inspiration Challenge)

Inspiration Challenge #7 (Don't forget to add IC07 to your keywords please!)

Today's inspiration comes from a poster of Grand Central Station.

I took my inspiration from the light streaming in the windows. Here is a link to my card:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=202088

Now let's see what you are inspired to make. Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors (black and white), the theme (train), or anything else -- this is up to your own interpretation!

No problem -- it is all about inspiration, you see the artwork and say, hey, I'd like to do X.

And don't worry if the link between the poster and your final project isn't obvious to the rest of us -- that isn't the point I know my thought process, most times, is extremely circuotous.

Just have fun!!

You mean I'm not the only one this week??? Between work and more work, there's no time to play.

I finally had a chance to play on this one. I decided to black & white & used gray as a shadow & for the background, because it is softer. But the card was just screaming for a touch of red, so I gave in & added a red flower. Here's my red flower card.

I got it done and it even passes for a guy card for Julia's challenge.
I let the light be my inspiration and the idea came to me as soon as I saw the photo of Grand Central. Hope you like my strange idea!

Here's Night Drive
