Arrow IC356 ~ Empirical Style {09-29-12}

Inspiration Challenge 356 ~ Empirical Style

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from Empirical Style …. The creation of Steve and Helena Trupp, a husband and wife team, living, working and loving their home town Melbourne, Australia.

Empirical Style was born from their shared love of unique interior design products sourced from around the world or designed with their bare hands when they couldn’t find something! They love design, travel, creative expression and being ‘a bit different.

I asked Karen ( Redbugdriver ) to join me this week & make another inspired card.

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 Empirical Style that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC356 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.


Redbugdriver’s sample ~ Empirical Halloween

My sample ~ New York, New York

IC356 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.

Another interesting site, Stef. This one brought back fond memories of Charley Harper who I met in the 80's. Thanks!

What a fun inspiration site! I love all the samples already in the gallery.

Mine is super clean and simple, but I think it worked for those Pennant lamps.

Simple Note

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful Saturday!
Hugs and smiles

I am an overachiever today and created a second card. I had to use the target practice sheets as a layout.

Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and smiles
