Arrow IC494 - Color Inspirations {05-23-15}

Let's take a free trip to Michael's and play with color this week! I have an awesome board for you, Color Inspirations pinned by Michael's Stores. ! I know you'll find something to inspire your creativity and there's no coupons required!

My Card


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today.


If you are unfamiliar with how to grab the hyperlinks from a Pinterest Board, here is a helpful video:




Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Color Inspirations pinned by Michael's Stores.


Use the keyword: IC494 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC494 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded 10 of my favorites.. so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

I peeked at the challenge last night before I went to bed and knew exactly what I was going to do for it. I knew it would take quite a while to complete my card, so I waited until this morning to put it all together. Here it is:

Heart IC494 Hugs from the Herd

Audrie- awesome site, thanks! I was inspired by the threaded hues and used SU's From the Herd for my get well card for a friend. Added a handwritten sentiment, along with a baker's twine bows/tag combo. Here's Hugs from the Herd

Thank you Audrie, love the design seeds color inspiration.
I guess I was feeling a little melancholy today with the gelatos...and also because the more I study the sentiment panel, the less I like the gray splatter. It looks dirty, I am feeling inclined to change it. Thank you for looking.
