Arrow IC66 - Artwork

Inspiration Challenge 66 - Artwork - IC66

This abstract art piece is entitled Barren Voltage by Natasha Wescoat and can be found at art.com.

Here is my card
View Submissions

So sorry this is late!!! I had a great night all to myself and the kids let me sleep in

Please use the IC66 keyword when uploading your card (no space b/n IC and the challenge number).

There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping! View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'!

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). Thank you.

Wow -- a night to yourself AND sleeping in? You must be living right! Thanks for the great challenge, Karen -- I just bought some dp yesterday that I think will be perfect. Now, if MY kids would just let me play... is 8:40 a.m. too early for naptime?

Default Barren Whatever

First of all - good for you, Karen, getting to sleep in! Secondly, this was harder than I thought. I had to go with colors and circles. Not very happy with this, but, here is

Barren Whatever



Thank Goodness for the cuttlebug!

I have 2 pieces of Basic Grey paper (hard to believe I know) and this is one of them--the one you all are thinking of when you see this piece of art--or at least, the one I thought of, considering my limited suppy!

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...97916&cat=3152

THanks for the challenge. That makes me 7 for 7 this week. WOO HOO first time ever!

So many ideas from this picture. I instantly thought of Polka Dots and Petals and trying to maintain the colors. Such fun

Hehehe, I was thinking the EXACT same thing -- just got the Basic Grey paper that has a sheet that looks like this.... mmmm, might have to do something with it -- that is IF I can actually bring myself to cut it LOL What a paper hoarder I am.....

Thanks Karen

Thank You, Karen for this inspiration piece. Here is my CARD FOR TODAY I think it is plain and fancy looking all mixed up. I will have my quality control person (DD in real life) tell me if I need to make a different card.

This is so not how I pictured it in my head, LOL.
I started out with a very literal interpretation, but after I had stamped and cut out a bunch of the circles I hated it! So it got a bit more funky, LOL.

I did have a challenge with the bg but it came out ok I think. I *DO* love the color combo I ended up using (Saffron Caribbean, Ruby Red, Chocolate)

Funky Petals

how funny-I just saw 2 more in the gallery using the same set for the same challenge .
