Inspiration Challenge 36 - Jewelry Box

I found this Thai Benjarong Jewelry Box at Etsy.com.

Here is my sample:
Stained Glass Friend

The idea of the Inspiration Challenge is to train your brain to look at the world around you for ideas. You do *not* need to recreate the piece - let your creative juices run wild! Feel free to change the colors, adjust the layout, or pick a different theme -- this is all up to your own interpretation! There are no rules!

Please add IC36 to your keywords (do not use a space or #). If you have other keywords, use a comma to separate them. Adding the challenge number to the keywords helps us to see all the submissions together.

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday. You may upload until midnight Pacific time; after that, please either attach your card to this thread or wait until Monday. Thank you!!

Be inspired and go get stamping!

Am I the first one? I guess it is pretty early on a Saturday morning! :cool:

What a beautiful jewelry box! It's my anniversary today as well as my son's birthday, so we'll see if I get to play today or not.

Wow, Karen! Your card is gorgeous and so is that box! True inspiration :)

Can't wait to get started!

Peace!

Pretty box. I love little boxes. Will see what I can come up with. Thanks, Karen.

I'm not sure I'll be able to play today -- very busy schedule -- but here's a card I did at Easter that I think qualifies for today's Inspiration Challenge.

Pretty inspiration piece Karen.
My wavy card is here. I went with the waves and some of the colors. I think because I just got the wave trimmer from CM and this was the first time I got to use it. What a fun little tool. And as always a fun challenge! Thanks for taking the time every week to keep us on our toes!

Happy anniversary!! (Mine is next week!) And Happy Birthday to your son!

Ok, here's mine; now I have to hurry up and pack; we're going to the beach for vacation; do you think DH will notice if I pack a few supplies? Pencil-over burgandy.

My granddaughter and I enjoyed this challenge!
Here's her card:

Thanks for looking at our cards!

I have never participated in the IC before, usually too busy Saturday mornings.
As soon as I saw the jewlery box I thought of the Souffle pens on dark cardstock. They sort of have those same bright colors. My card is nothing I would have come up on my own, really not my style, but I guess that is why we need to be challenged!!

I was inspired by the wonderful jewel tones, the cloisonne look, and the white rim of the lid of the jewelry box!

I think I'm becoming addicted to these challenges!

OMG THIS IS SO NOT MY STYLE BUT IT WAS FUN! Here's mine:

P.S. The colors match in real life; the golds look off on my scanner.

jazzytobi 08-12-2006 10:43 AM

I was inspired by all of the gold framing the box and the dense flower pattern. I liked this challenge because it made me think more traditionally vs. funky. TFL!

p.s. I'm addicted too! ;)

This was the perfect inspiration I needed to make this card for my niece today. Thanks

lzappa 08-12-2006 11:15 AM

Ok, now THIS is my style. I re-did the card with the same paisley, using my sytle instead of the heavy cloisonne look.

Hi Sherri! Thanks so much for the happy wishes! I'm stealing a few minutes away from the family to see what's been posted so far today. :cool: I'm hoping to get my card finished and ready to upload on Monday.

notimetostamp 08-12-2006 12:32 PM

Here's my contribution to today's challenge -- I loved the inspiration piece -- sometimes I look at them they say nothing to me -- this one just jumped up and called my name!!! It was fun. Here's my link:

Unfortunately, the gallery uploads are approved FILO - first in, last out - I know I've had mine languish for hours while others were uploaded. Hang in there! They'll have the queue cleared before no upload Sunday.

NANCYRUTH 08-12-2006 01:17 PM

Here is mine!!

A beautiful piece for the challenge, Karen. So many pretty images to get inspiration from. I saw the enameled butterfly and flowers and the circle shape.

I finished mine this morning, but needed to charge my camera before I could take a picture. I combined mine with 2 other challenges. Here is circle of roses.

Monarch Butterfly
 
1 Attachment(s)
Well, I liked the colors so I started there with the babywipe technique using bliss blue, barely banana and mauve mist. Used the Monarch Butterfly from Natures Sketchbook and stamped that on my marvelous color creation in black. Slapped that onto some gold cardstock for the border effect and then adhered that to some blue cardstock. added some ribbon that had blue pink and yellow in it and toped it off with some black eyelash, trimmed thelashes cuz they were a little long. God i have to stop taking LSD, lol.

NOTE: I decided I did not like the eyelash and took it off, this is the link to "no eyelash"
