IC27 - Abstract Art (Inspiration Challenge)
Inspiration Challenge #27 (Don't forget to add IC27 to your keywords please!)
Today's inspiration comes from an abstract art piece - First Rose by Vicky Brago-Mitchell. I know this one may be a little "out there", but you can be inspired by just the colors, don't feel you need to recreate the piece.
Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors, layout, theme, or anything else -- this is up to your own interpretation!
Hi Karen and thanks for posting ! I beat those yackety yacks here,lol. That is a very cool abstract you have as the example. I don't know where or how you find these but you are perfect at it. See you in the morning with my inspirational take on this challenge ! Goodnight to all you chatty stalkers, luv ya and sweet dreams too !
Wow, that is an awesome piece of artwork. Wish I could see it IRL. I'm too tired to start stamping now, but I have an idea, if I can make it work. Thanks, Karen. Hope I can get it done in the morning. DS has H.S. graduation tomorrow afternoon.

As soon as I saw the inspiration, I thought Roses in Winter. Alas, I do not have that set, so I guess I'm going to have to work a little harder to come up with something. So we'll see what the day brings! Thanks for the real challenge.
I got mine done and I really like it, much better than the first one I did and didn't finish, but I will. I've noticed I do that a lot for this challenge!
Thank you Karen, you make me think and use supplies too!
The very first thing I saw in the artwork was Roses in Winter but I don't have that set but I do have roses - so here is...
Joni, you aren't alone. I spent most of the morning messing around with this challenge too. My profile says that I am a "Pearl-Expert", but that's not true. I have pearls, but haven't learned much about using them. I wanted a Pearl-Ex card today, so I spent most of the morning playing with them and learning the different pearl-ex techniques.
I'm not entirely happy with my card, but it turned out better than I thought it was going to. There is a big glitter swirl but it doesn't show well in the scan.
Well Karen....I tried to join in for the first time today....but I just can't make myself like what I came up with!!! Thanks for the challenge....maybe next time I'll post! (seriously....I'm not posting this....I do NOT like anything about it!!!)
Well.... I am giving you ALL a standing ovation!! EVERYONE'S take on this challenge is WONDERFUL (going to comment after I post). I just wanted to tell you that I did try..... but only wound up wasting my WHOLE morning yesterday. (well... maybe 'wasting' is the wrong word... I still enjoyed 'playing'... just got frustrated I didn't like anything I did!) I was gonna post a picture of the half baked idea I had.... but chickened out!! It was just too horrid to share! I just wanted you to know I did try!!
Now.... off to your galleries, I go!!
Have a wonderful day, girls!!
My first Inspiration Challenge -- thanks Karen! I really, really wanted to use Roses in Winter, but forced myself to go in another direction. I LOVED the colors in the inspiration piece and ended up doing the Baby Wipe Technique to capture the colors that stood out to me. I also added a little Iridescent Ice EP to the flower for some glitter. Here's my card.

Ok, I made my card late Saturday night. The stickles weren't dry so I couldn't scan it until Sunday - but no uploading!! I went with the general color/floral theme....I like these colors together - very bright and cheery!
