Arrow IC574 - Rachelle Levingston {12-03-16}

I hope you've had a week full of inspirations from which you've been able to steal a few crafting moments. I think if we can do something crafty every day, it definitely raises our spirits! So, I always appreciate meeting new artists who practice their art regularly. This week I'd like to introduce to you Rachelle Levingston on Etsy. It's obvious that she loves watercolor techniques, so feel free to honor her with a watercolor technique of your very own!

My CAS Card


Challenge Goals:
Please 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. You are welcome to provide a link to your blog, however please also provide a link to your inspiration in the description to make it easy for everyone to see what inspired you here on SCS.


Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Rachelle Levingston on Etsy. You definitely don't have to keep the watercolor theme, you could simply be inspired by the colors and/or textures you see.

Use the keyword: IC574 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.


IC574 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 below. 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.

What a treat Friday night is...a drink to wet my whistle, music to soothe my soul, and the IC! Perfect.

Today's entry is sponsored by the letter {e}.

Can't wait to see the gallery today. Thanks Audrie.

Heart IC574 Beary Bear

I loved Rachelle's gallery! I was inspired by this kid rabbit PRINT with its vivid background, and used SU's Button Bear for my animal image. Added some stitching, and used a marker and my aqua painter for the background. Here's Beary Bear

When I saw this card from Rachelle:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/2906001...home_active_85
It brought me to this card. My take on her lovely water color.
