Arrow IC314 ~ Ten Thousand Villages {12-10-11}

Inspiration Challenge 314 ~ Ten Thousand Villages

This week’s Inspiration Challenge site Ten Thousand Villages was suggested by Gail (Mamaxsix). Ten Thousand Villages features fair trade artisan products with a wide variety of styles. Their mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships.

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 Ten Thousand Villages that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC314 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Mamaxsix ~ Bamboo Thoughts

My sample ~ Tea Light Floriculture

IC314 Gallery

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.

Beautiful hand-made items on this site, Stef. I combined my IC challenge card with one of the VSN challenges from last night. I didn't get to play last night, so I'm in "catch-up" mode. Here's my card --
