This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the wonderful Etsy Store of Singing Cat Studio featuring polymer clay components colored with mica powders and sealed with a clear, permanent, water-resistant acrylic finish. The artist adds a wide range of elements to her creations, including vintage and antique buttons to contemporary filigrees and stampings.
Remember, out of respect for the creative originality of this talented artisan, please do not print out photos of the items to use directly on your project or copy a piece exactly.
I have asked Audrie (girlgeek101) to join me in making an additional inspired card sample this week.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Singing Cat Studio that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC311 (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. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. 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.
I love this weeks' website, the little jewelry elements are perfect miniature layouts that are so very inspiring. Thank you for inviting me this week - and I can't wait to play again tomorrow - smiles!
Wow! Such a COOL Etsy shop full of neat, handmade pieces! Great choice for a challenge. I liked something about each and every piece. But, I got it narrowed down to 20! Heehee! Bring it on ladies! I can't wait to see what delightful projects ya'll will post!
