Arrow IC348 ~ Selfridges & Co. {08-04-12}

Inspiration Challenge 348 ~ Selfridges & Co.

To celebrate the Olympic Games, we’re heading to London to find inspiration from Selfridges & Co. Maybe you prefer to wander through the Big British Shop … or perhaps the Big Yellow Shop is more your style. Wherever your path takes you at Selfridges, I’m sure you’ll be inspired.

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. Remember to let us know which item from Selfridges & Co. that inspired you.

I have invited Francesca (fishymom) to join me in making some additional cards to inspire you.

Use the keyword: IC348 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

fishymom’s 1st sample ~ Inspired 10th Birthday

fishymom’s 2nd sample ~ Inspired Classic

My sample ~ Cheerio!

IC348 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.

There were two pillows I saw when I first went on the Selfridges website, and I was truly inspired by them because for a couple days I could not ignore the little voice in my head that kept urging me to ignore the housework and make 2 more cards for this challenge:
Plum Gingerlily Sympathy
Gold Pearl Gingerlily.

Thanks again for a fun inspiration challenge!
