Arrow IC98 - Painted Gourd [20-Oct-07]

Inspiration Challenge 98 - Painted Gourd - IC98

This beautiful gourd was done by Maria Dellos. The gourds were a suggestion by Christine aka Chrisations.ink and more gourds can be found at I Brake for Stamps.

My Sample:
Leather & Studs

View IC98 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.

What a great inspiration! Karen, for whatever reason, your sample isn't showing up in the gallery - getting the red X.

This is a great idea! I grow gourds in my garden and my son won a prize at the county fair for his painted gourd I hope I have time to do this today!

Loved your card, Biggan!

I love my card - don't often say that. Jerri Kay was kind enough to stamp the image for me! I so wanted this for my son's birthday. Unfortunately, as was the case yesterday, the card is not showing up in the challenge gallery. But, I did the challenge - went with the warm earth tones!

Ken's birthday

Thanks for looking!

Talk about Inspiration... I have to teach a lesson tomorrow in church and one of the stories that I am using in entitled "The Cracked Pot" (One of my Favorite Inspirational Stories.) Also, the painted gourds and Indian Pottery are among my favorite things to decorate with. (Doesn't go to well here in New England...) Anyway, they remind me of where I grew up roaming the hills of South Central Utah. So... Here is my card or book, as it turned out to be, For the Inspiration Challenge today. If you would like a copy of the story you can check out my blog or PM me and I will send you a copy in an email.

Brushed with Gold
Also a peek at the inside...
