Arrow IC11 - Lamp (Inspiration Challenge)

Inspiration Challenge #11 (Don't forget to add IC11 to your keywords please!)

Today's inspiration comes from a stain-glass type lamp (thanks mom!). I've attached two photos of the lamp -- one using my flash so you can see the colors and design; the other with the flash off so you can see how it looks glowing (oooh ahhh).

Here is a link to my card:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=225394
I took my inspiration from the thick glass pieces that make up the dragonfly eyes (I know, hard to see in the pictures, but I got to see it up close, so you'll just have to believe me ) -- I decided to create my own broach (also hard to see in the scan).

Now let's see what you are inspired to make -- and tell us what your inspiration was when you post your card.

Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors (rich, earthy), the theme (lamp, dragonfly, etc.), or anything else -- this is up to your own interpretation!

Oh no Karen, you've inspired me to go to the basement and create with stained glass although I've never done a lamp, just panels,kaleidoscope and small stuff. What a pretty piece of art this is and the mind is working already for a card, thanks for posting!

What a beautiful lamp! Hmmm..... I'm trying to see if I can think of something. I'll have to try to steal away to the craft room this afternoon!

That would be cool Rox -- make sure you post when done (even if it isn't something stamped) -- I love stained glass works!

I got it done earlier today but it's taken some time to get it approved. I just read that Beate is having a busy weekend of approvals with Jenn away.

I really enjoyed working on this card today. I love the inspiration photo and could play off it with an idea that's been in my head for a while now. Funny how your photo just made it all come together! Thanks Karen, this challenge is always fun!

Here's my card

Did something happen to the lamp thumbnails? I can't seem to see them this morning.

*Edit* Guess they're back now!

I thought the melted crayon background would be just the thing for emulating the look of the glass pieces. It was just the background effect I was looking for.
I'm not as happy with the finished product as I thought I would be (the picture in my mind was better than how it turned out IRL). I'm not sure what to do differently, though.

Took me long enough to get back to this one I missed. Here's my dragonfly art.
