Arrow IC605 - Dessert Bites: Macarons & Meringues {07-08-17}

This week we're gonna get our sweet tooth cravings satisfied with the beautiful Dessert Bites: Macarons & Meringues Pinterest Board by Bakers Royale. This is a board that might inspire you to bake first (lol), but will definitely also introduce fun color palettes and patterns that will incite lots of fun paper crafting too! I love the way the artist in the video below painted them.....that really got me thinking too! I can't wait to see what you create (or bake)!


My Colorful Gift Tag Sample

Goals:
Please don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because it looks like an image on the board. Rather, take the real challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow again, and creating something brand new for the gallery!


Use the keyword: IC605 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words. Include your inspiration image in the description of your project being sure to only include links from our inspiration board: Dessert Bites: Macarons & Meringues Pinterest Board by Bakers Royale!


IC605 Gallery


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little, images to choose from, I've uploaded 10 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.

Audrie, I love your websites you choose. This time I didn't have to go far and chose this one to case today.

This site made me sooooooo hungry for sweets! I've had this little figure stuck in my head for a couple of days, and the cookies inspired me to make her in soft colors with bits of green and brown for mint and chocolate.

I took time to make the other card I wanted to do - this one was much more difficult to produce than I think it should have been!

There were three inspiration images that clinched the direction my card took: colorful, bold and vibrant...no pastels for me! The navy macaroon dictated my cardbase...aren't they gorgeous, and the vibrant colored macaroons inspired me to make this a very colorful card! The links to my macaroon inspirations are: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/748723506771254460/
