Default IC389 ~ Greenheart Shop {5-18-13}

Inspiration Challenge 389 ~ Greenheart Shop

Greenheart is Chicago’s premier eco-fair trade non-profit shop, carrying eco fair trade products made by artisans from around the world. The purchase of these products improves the lives of real people and the products are made by establishments that take care of our Earth.

Remember, you don't have to take the inspiration literally ..... just ride the inspiration train wherever it takes you.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded six 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 the Greenheart Shop that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC389 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My Card ~ Sunshine

IC389 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.

Oh this is awesome - simply awesome. Just looking at your samples makes me all wiggly inside. Well, I may be that way already as my stamping group is coming this morning, but I will be back later for sure. Thanks, Judy!

Wink IC389 Forget Me Not

Great site- thanks so much, Judy! I was inspired by the Archer Necklace and used my new Sizzix Seed Packet ef for my card. Rubbed the images with green and purple inked sponges, and added some colored pencilling. Finished with some embellies, along with this pretty lilac dc flower. Here's Forget Me Not

Well ... I had to do a combination of two inspirations to get to my card, they are:

Wooden Bowl and Metal flower

From these I came up with mine
