Default WT221 - Creative Images (06/04/09)

Today I have a challenge that everyone will be able to play along with. I love product challenges but not everyone has every product so it is fun to through in more of a concept challenge every now and then. So... here's the challenge...

Do you ever find yourself wanting to create a design along a certain theme but donít have stamps or product that really captures it? The great way to get around that without running off the store is to create your own image. Itís really easier than you might think and todayís challenge will push you out of your box if this is something you have never tried. You can put an image together using punches, create a shaped card such as a flower to create your image, arrange brads or buttons to create an image or draw out your own and cut it out of cardstock. Iím sure there are other ideas as well and Iíd love to see what you create! Have fun finding ways to use creative images this week.

As always, please remember to put WT221 in your keywords section and link your design back here so that we can all see it. Please upload new or previously unseen designs to this challenge.

My sample: Ruff Day

WT221 Gallery Submissions

Happy Creating!

Julia

Great idea - have to make a couple 'ordered' cards and then, hopefully, I'm on this one!

Eesh, I'll have to think about this one! The reason I stamp is because I truly can't draw, so that one's out. Punches are more my thing. Fun challenge, Julia.

Happy Day
Be back later on in the evening to look through the gallery - I am sure there will lots of imagination to see .
This reminded of camping in France one year - they were having some sort of tourism festival at one campsite, and we arrived just in time to see all the balloons taking off.

This is a great challenge! Perfect timing, too--I need to make a graduation card but I don't have *any* stamps that are graduation-y. This challenge is just the push I need to be creative and make what I don't have. I'm hoping to give this a shot later today . . .

This card is not new but has never been seen on SCS. I've always been partial to it so I hope you like it, too.
