Arrow IC496 - Wreaths Board by Ana {06-06-15}

Do you love adding that special something to your home decor like I do? By something special I mean something 'hand crafted' that you can look at with pride each and every day. One of my favorite things to make for my home is a wreath. You can make wreaths all year long, not just at Christmas. I noticed that a lot of people are loving wreaths with me on Pinterest too! So I decided to share my favorite wreath board with you for this weeks' inspiration challenge: Wreaths by Ana. Although this is definitely NOT a wreath challenge LOL - you may make a wreath if you are so inspired. However, even if you don't want to make a wreath, I bet you'll still find a color, or a texture, or a pattern (or even something tasty) on this wonderful wreath board that will really spark your creativity!

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 Wreaths by Ana Pinterest Board, or one of the attached images below.


Use the keyword: IC496 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC496 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 saw a lot of wreaths with flowers - so any one of those I can use as an inspiration I guess. That was one beautiful and brilliant website!

Smile IC496 Happy Flowers

I was inspired by the elegant pink flowers with creamy petals in this wreath- using SU's Happy Watercolor for my scalloped dc flowers and adding an apple green round shape. Finished with some stamped images from A Round Array from SU and yellow gems. Here's Happy Flowers

Here's my card for the challenge, Birthday Boy, the inspiration is mainly the colour theme but also the wreath shape.
Cheers
