Arrow IC354 ~ Wild Things Dresses {09-15-12}

Inspiration Challenge 354 ~ Wild Things Dresses

Wild Things Dresses was born to create timeless yet contemporary handmade pieces loved by children and adults alike.

Little ones love to wear the strong colors and simple imagery, and grown ups like the subtle retro influences and elements of childhood nostalgia. Designer Kirsty Hartley is influenced by the simplicity of Scandinavian design, 60’s & 70’s styling, and random naïve elements and whimsical details which appeal to little ones.

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 Wild Things Dresses that inspired you.

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

Use the keyword: IC354 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

AndreaEwen’s sample ~ You’re Invited

My sample ~ Gnome Home

IC354 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.

Heart IC354 Beee Mine ATC for Em

Yippee! I got my Stamping Bella stamps from the gift cert I won- and this is one of my faves- beeemine huggabugg. I combined this with a Tinkerbelle stamp - cousin to the gnomes- as my inspiration was little girls party dress- gnome print with its vibrant reds and yellows. I dedicated this to Em at Stamping Bella for her generosity
Here's Beee Mine ATC for Em

Heart IC354 Packed With Love

I was inspired by the rocket rascals cloche hat and came up with a grown up brunette with her own rocket-like Thunderbird convertible- with Stamping Bella's Cruisabella. Here's Packed With Love
