This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the magical holiday ornaments of Christopher Radko. He is credited with having brought the fine European glass Christmas ornament tradition back to America.
I removed the link to the Christopher Radko site. Here are two other safe sites where you can find his ornaments. Please stick with only Radko ornaments for your inspiration.
I have asked Gabby (gabalot) 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. These are some picture-heavy pages, so it will take some to load.
The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Christopher Radko that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC313 (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 really liked Christopher Radko's Santa on a sleigh ornament- here it is- I used a cool vintage style sleigh stamp from Dragonfly Laser instead of Santa with his sleigh. Have a great sunday! Here's Sledding Boy Tag
