Arrow IC349 ~ Vintage Poster Market {08-11-12}

Inspiration Challenge 349 ~ Vintage Poster Market

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the Vintage Poster Market … home of one of the largest collections of European vintage poster reproductions. They carry a wide range of artists and subjects that are sure to inspire.

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 Vintage Poster Market that inspired you.

I have invited Monika (buzsy) to join me in making an additional card to inspire you.

Use the keyword: IC349 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

buzsy’s sample ~ Blessings

My sample ~ Nature’s Abundance

IC349 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.

For some reason the site isn't linking. Says something in a foreign language.

I sure hope I can play along today. Yesterday morning I hurt my back cleaning the bathroom and it's hurts so bad to walk. I found some wonderful inspiration....

Hugs,

Heart IC349 Vintage Bride

Stef- just love this site! I was inspired by Seville Feria, with its lovely lady in a matilla veil- and so I took Graphic 45's My Beloved paper, and cut out this pretty bride with my framelits die and added some pretty antique lace and trim. Here's Vintage Bride

Smile IC349 Three Crows Hello

Steph- my last card for the day, was inspired by the Liner Amazone, Antilles- with its bright colors, and perched bird. Used Hero Art's messages stamp, Hambo Stamps' Crows- and added a gathered ribbon and rough twine. Here's Three Crows Hello

Here's my effort (inspired by the last poster sample in blue, yellow and white) and I could sure use constructive criticism:

Victorian Face by Paper Crazy Lady - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I'm not confidant about this work. Victorian doesn't come naturally to me.
Is there too much paper tearing?
What about the colors? Do they work with the style?
What about the sponging - too much?
I tried to distress the ribbon - does it just look junky?
