Arrow IC41 - Shoebox

Inspiration Challenge 41 ( IC41 ) - Shoebox

So, in cleaning up my house so I can sell it (anyone wanna come help...please) I was recycling and found this awesome shoebox lid from PayLess. I was immediately inspired...hope you are too!

My sample.

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. Thank you!!

Cool used a sharpie!

This was a great challenge! I had to make a card tonight even though it's getting late. I really liked the sharpie sketch , so I made one too.

Thanks for looking!

Here's mine! I literally went with the inspiration - all I could see was Haute Couture, so that's what I used. I colored with twinkling H2O's - I wanted it to look 'artsy' - this was the best I could do....

OK - I guess great minds think alike! I just went back to see what others had done and lacyquilter used the same set as me. Great card Melody!!

Thanks, Karen, for posting yet another great inspiration piece. I struggled a little, then remembered this little lady who sits all by herself most of the time!

Thanks for looking!

I don't have Haute Couture either but liked the solid black outline and went with that for inspiration:

I thought of Haute Couture first also, the lady was perfect for this challenge piece. I used the dress instead since it had similar lines.

Haute Couture was my first thought, too -- but, alas, not at my house! So this is what I came up with. It's a stretch!

What a great piece, Karen--so many directions you could take with it. I went with the bright backgrounds and black accents. Hope to get back later to check out what I'm sure will be some outstanding uploads!

Great challenge! I worked on the background the most, trying new techniques. Here's what I've settled for since I don't have any watercolor paper, which I needed for all the things I tried. I did one with the pastels and buffed it. then I smired the butterfly as I was mounting it on the white backing. I liked it buffed, but it may not have shown up on the scan anyway - or so that's what I'm telling myself!!

a 2nd one for me, too. I love the flow of the inspiration piece, wished I had been able to achieve it more closely. Also the colors aren't as close this time, for sure. Watercolor Butterfly
