Arrow IC452 - Shabby Chic and Romantic {08-02-14}

This weeks inspiration challenge offers the opportunity for you to take a theme challenge as well. We are going to explore a beautiful Pinterest board by EstaHome Decor entitled Shabby Chic and Romantic! I really enjoyed browsing the site and being inspired by many of the photos. To kick off your creative spirit, I've uploaded two cards, I hope you are inspired by them too! Side Point: I am sorry, it's been difficult lately to find available guest hostesses. So, if you would be interested in guest hosting with me then just send me a private message and let me know so I can be sure to invite you!

My First Card
My Second Card


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today .

Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Shabby Chic and Romantic board.

If you are unfamiliar with how to grab the hyperlinks from a Pinterest Board, here is a helpful video:



Use the keyword: IC452 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC452 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded five of my favorites (plus one that I found worth a smile!)… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger. Please let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

Perfect for combining with one of the DTGD challenges! Shabby chic isn't my strong suit but I feel happy I captured it with this.
