Arrow IC375 ~ An Angel at My Table {02-09-13}

Hi Everyone!

This week's inspiration website is a charming, family-run web and catalog store out of the UK called "An Angel at My Table." Their inventory is “quirky, unusual and individual” and some products even have a definite 'artisanal' quality about them “based on originality more than perfection!” As I looked around, I found their taste to be on the "vintage" side and so I loved so many of the pieces they have! Please have a look at this unique collection of “furniture, fripperies and petits folies” and see what inspires you!

If you don't have time to spend browsing "An Angel at My Table" , attached are a few samples from the website that you are welcome to use as your inspiration!

My Sample: White Valentine Birdcage

Quick Link to IC375 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached sample images and/or browse the suggested website. Get your inspiration from the the individual items, style, patterns, theme or color pallets. Just enjoy wherever your inspired and creative journey takes you! Make the inspiration piece your own! Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong'! There is no time limit on this challenge and there are no rules. Explore and enjoy ~ be *inspired* to create, have fun, and share your artwork!!

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 IC375 Forever Beloved

Anne- lovely website, so many treasures! I was inspired by the Three full-blown roses in vintage bottles and used CTMH's Beloved Blossoms for my central image and sentiment. Added a dc heart, stamped and lettered, along with some ribbons and a button. Background "wood" is brown coreboard type dp, embossed, and distressed with a sandpaper block to bring out the "grain". Here's Forever Beloved

I really loved the musical paper bird clips, and DH insisted on looking at ALL the pop-up cards in the stationery section (he does some origamic architecture cards himself), but in the end I went with something that would help me nail another Christmas card for my Feb qota.
IC375 Snowy Village by Cook22
It also brought back memories of the little white icing church I made to decorate my brother's wedding cake.

Smile IC375 Howdy Friends

Anne- such a fabulous website, thanks! I was inspired by Little City- interactive stationery with its many colors and shapes, and its greenery. I used this mouse themed wreath image, with a half circle of pearls, along with some vintage flower dp- and my cowgirl, complete with lasso. Here's Howdy Friends
