Arrow IC379 ~ A View on Cities {03-09-13}

Inspiration Challenge 379 ~ A View on Cities

This week's SplitCoast Stampers Inspiration Challenge comes from the amazing photos from A View on Cities , which provides insight into various cities around the world.

The website asks that if you upload one of their photos to your personal blog, make sure you provide proper attribution to A View On Cities by adding a reference to the site with a working link on the page where you use the image(s). The link can be made directly from the picture or by using a text reference.

I invited Lesley ( Marleygo ) to join me and make an additional inspired card this week.

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 picture from A View on Cities that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC379 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Marleygo’s sample ~ Give and Receive

My sample ~ Eiffel Sketch

IC379 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 IC379 Sweet Girl

Stef- a most inspiring site! I was influenced by Buckingham Fountain's animated water display with its wonderful yellows and pinks- I used La La Land Crafts' Marci stamp for my image. Here's Sweet Girl

Oh, how cool!! I'm pretty sure I'll be going to Paris this morning but I'm going to enjoy just looking at those photos first. Thanks, Stef.

I'm so intrigued by this inspiration of cities and landmarks. I have some stamping time today so maybe I can create something that works. Thanks Stef!

I really enjoyed looking at "A View on Cities" so thanks for an introduction to a lovely website. I thought this would be a great opportunity to play with my "London Stamps" and HERE is what I made with them!

I was inspired by all students who will make travel next month for the end of school... I designed this album for private class of teenagers. I want to create an album to give them tangible ways to preserve memories, quotes and friendships with their friend (s) outside of social medias. Inspired by the current Mail Art, I wanted them to go back in time and make them aware of mail art. I gave this class yesterday and they seem delightfull...
