This week’s inspiration comes from the amazing hand decorated tiles of Xenia Taler. When asked why they create, here’s what Xenia Taler says:
Because we hope that one day, a long, long time from now, not only will your children fight mercilessly over the wonderful tiles you had so wisely purchased, but even when humankind is forced to venture off this world and fend amongst the stars, those tiles will be the second or third item on a strict ten item list which your descendents feel they must take along with them on their arduous journey.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. For the rest of you, remember to link us up to the item from Xenia Taler that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC202 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Instead of going to bed when I should have, I thought I'd just take a quick look at the Xenia Talor website. Big mistake! I saw this tile -- http://www.xeniataler.com/index.php?...products_id=63 -- and knew just what I wanted to do. Here's my card -- Fright Night. It's a good thing it went together quickly -- 10 minutes, start to finish.
Thanks for another great website, Stef. I may be back in the morning.
So I went way outside the box on this one, I'm sure most people wont know what to think... but its something my Dad would appreciate and my hubby likes it Instead of being inspired by one tile, it was a set of 4 that caught my eye http://www.xeniataler.com/index.php?...products_id=47
Thanks for posting early Stef and thank you for the challenge. I haven't done an inspiration challenge in ages! This was fun! Here's my submission and I hope you like it. Thank you for looking. I'll have details and additional close-up pictures on the blog in the morning.
