Arrow IC383 ~ Patina (04-06-13}

Inspiration Challenge 383 ~ Patina

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from retailer Patina, offering a shopping experience that is meant to elevate your senses, broaden your perspective, and invoke a lifestyle change.

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 design from Patina that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC383 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Fly

IC383 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.

Smile IC383 Happy Flowers

Stef- great site! I was influenced by the Lavender Watercolor Scarf with its color palette of yellow, lilac, pink, orange and turquoise. I started with this wonderful raffia bow from my DD's easter basket, and used Stampendous' Cling Seed Catalog stamp, along with CB's Birds and Swirls EF for an overlay, with the raised designs colored in gold marker. Here's Happy Flowers

Talking IC383 Tuning In To Say Hi

Stef- just had to revisit this site, it is so cool! I was inspired by the vintage 60s vibe of the Vintage Camper Birdfeeder- I used Lawn Fawn's Stay Tuned stamp set for my tv and sentiment, and this "new to me" Flintstones stamp set. Added a pebbly background- as this is supposed to be the Stone Age! Here's Tuning In To Say Hi

D, DH thought it was going to be hard for me to find inspiration this morning but how wrong he was! Two cards made (one for him to give a friend) and another one if I get the time later!
Thanks, Stef!!

What a fun site - especially the BACON section

But I wandered around and found some hand cream for inspiration. Here's my MERCI card - thanks for looking.

So much inspiration, but I was really drawn to the stark, simple beauty of a cherry blossom teapot. Inspired Cherry Blossom Sympathy

I found this "Manskills" book on the site and used the cover design as a sketch for my card. Also did a masculine theme.
