Arrow IC392 ~ Emma Bridgewater {06-08-13}

Inspiration Challenge 392 ~ Emma Bridgewater

This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge comes from wonderful world of* Emma Bridgewater . *Emma and her husband Matthew contribute to the designs for their hand-decorated pottery and kitchen items that are produced in their*factory in Stoke-on-Trent where they are the sixth largest employer of potters in the area. They describe themselves as a British Company selling British products.**

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 Emma Bridgewater that inspired you.

*** And don't forget, it's a Virtual Stamp Night Weekend if you want to join the fun there too.

Use the keyword: IC392 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Love This Life

IC392 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.

Fun site with many things English, Stephanie. I used my inspiration for something All-American...baseball. Was working on a thank you and saw a tea towel that pointed me in the right direction. Thanks.

BASEBALL THANKS

After six months of full retirement, I had a temporary job this week -- and today was the first time I've had a chance to play in the challenges. Here's my card -- Flowers and Umbrella .

Talking IC392 You're Unfrogettable

Stef- wonderful site! I was inspired by the Figs 1/2 pint jug with its cool purples and greens. I used SU's Unfrogettable for my sentiment, and Rubber Stampede's Poison Dart Frog for my image. Had fun with a mix of colors and patterns for a background, finished with a filmy green ribbon. Here's You're Unfrogettable
