Arrow IC94 - Enamel Frame [22-Sep-07]

Inspiration Challenge 94 - Enamel Frame - IC94

Rainy (aka Susan) sent me this frame a while back. It is from Neiman Marcus (of course, there are plenty others by the same artist....just don't look at the prices ).

I know some of you may find this hard, so if you do, look at the piece in different ways - see just parts of it, and maybe you can pull one idea from it -- your card/project does not need to be a recreation. Just have fun - that is what this challenge is about!

View IC94 Gallery

How to Play 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'! 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). Thank you.

This was a challenge for sure - thanks, Karen! I went with the colors, the semi-impressionistic look, a nature image, and the oval shape. TFL!

Yeah! I got to play today--for the first time in for-ever since I'm home alone this morning (doing the happy dance!!! This very rarely happens). I knew within seconds what I wanted to do for this card. But--since I don't have any little girl stamps either (its an all boy world here), I just put the sentiment inside my frame. Here's a look:

Thanks for looking! And thanks for a fabulous morning of stamping inspirations!

I immediately knew what I wanted to do with this inspiration. I was curious to see other items by this artist/designer so I went to the link above. PRICEY but I really liked some of his work. Inspired by some other pieces as well as this one. Hopefully I will find time and space to work on this later.
