Arrow IC691 {3/2/19} V&A Museum

Happy Saturday & welcome to the Inspiration Challenge! Can you believe it's March already?? This week's challenge is brought to you by V&A Museum (aka Victoria & Albert Museum). Polly (peeps321) suggested this site so she's joining us a Guest Designer. I think you'll love all the beautiful items..there's really a lot to see. So hurry on over, check out V&A Museum pick what appeals to you & go create! Please be sure to link us up to what inspired you.

IC691 Gallery

Use Keyword: IC691

Here's my card: Butterflies

And here are 2 lovelies that Polly created:

Vintage Birthday
Easter Greetings


Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board ? Be sure to check it out!


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little, images to choose from, I've uploaded 5 (or more) of my favorite designs! So just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS.

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. 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). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)
4. Click edit. Click Copy.
5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

Super site, Julie and Polly. I've heard of this museum but never 'explored.' So who is watching Victoria this season?

Jean I got the idea to use this site because of Victoria on Masterpiece I have not been to the museum but have had family who were there and brought me some goodies. They have a lot of William Morris...and I'm a huge fan. Have fun picking out an inspiration!

Default IC691 Roosters

Inspired by this wonderful drawing of a Rooster - I made this card with my stamping friends, using the rooster stamp for both a background (upper panel) and a central image, my panel backed with a black scalloped edge. Finished with a multi loop twine bow and sentiment combo. Here's Roosters

Here's my first crack at this challenge. I'm not loving it, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. I was inspired by this Blue Clamp Dye scarf: Blue clamp dye scarf

Why do I have cooking and cleaning and grocery shopping looming over me today? I could happily live in the V&A museum.

Thanks for the mega Inspiration Challenge, Polly and Julie.

Time, it's certainly altered

Playing my "Challenge Catch-up" cardmaking, I found this inspiration, which inspired my ballerina and her dress colors. Valse Nobles et Sentimentales Costume Design, 1947.

Here is my card: A Little Pink Ballerina for Sienna!
