Arrow IC376 ~ Limoges Box Collector {02-16-13}

Inspiration Challenge 376 ~ Limoges Box Collector

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from Limoges Box Collector . Their extensive collection of Limoges boxes features exquisite hand-painted porcelain Limoges boxes by top-of-the-line Limoges manufacturers such as Beauchamp, Artoria, Rochard, and many more. From pouring the porcelain paste into the mold to the hand-painting and metalwork, every Limoges box they offer is crafted by master artisans in Limoges, France.

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 Limoges Box Collector that inspired you.

I have asked Harriet ( hskelly ) to join me in making an additional card to inspire you.

Use the keyword: IC376 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

hskelly’s sample ~ You Are Treasured

My sample ~ Once Upon a Time

IC376 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.

I'm with Sabrina...there were so many great ideas that I hardly knew where to start! Believe it or not I ended up with an Asian theme after seeing a bonsai tree box. Inspired Work of Art The polished stone panel is so much prettier IRL.

Wow, I've never seen so many little boxes in one place! There are some beauties and I was duely inspired by a few. But for the sake of getting a card done today I went with this box: Limoges Boxes | First Tooth with Roses & Pink Stripes Limoges Box by Beauchamp | LimogesBoxCollector.com
Here's my Birthday Box
