Default IC667 9/15/18 { QiQi Gallery}

Hi, & Welcome to this week's Inspiration Challenge. Where we are headed to Etsy specifically to the beautiful Abstract art QiQi Gallery in Canada. I loved every single thing I seen inside her site where it makes me think of Mixed Media backgrounds. I especially love the colors and textures of this particular one. The first one in the collection of images seen below. If you scroll down below the first cluster of thumbnails in the store there will be a button to view all 400plus items currently for sale.
Have fun with this,
I am looking forward to see what sparks you all.


Use the keyword: IC667(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 The QiQi Gallery.



Use the Keyword IC667


Here is a link to the IC667 Gallery

Here is a link to My first Card

and my second card seen here


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 8 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 post in this thread. Thanks for Joining along with us!


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE? Since so many are having trouble grabbing the link to just one picture, please try this:

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.

oh, what fun, Stacy! I love her vibrant work. Can't wait to finish up my work week and head for the studio.

And absolutely praying for everyone impacted directly or not, that they would be safe.

Thanks for the fun site, Stacy, it's really great for any of the marbling backgrounds we might have in our stash which is what I thought I was going to use until I saw the pink and gold abstract painting!!

I'm trying to get better at participation (and playing in general instead of endless collecting and organizing), so I made TWO cards today! Fun site, Stacy! My cards are HERE and HERE.

Thanks, Stacy. This one was a snap for me, having a huge stash of marbled papers. And one cannot go wrong with adding cats.
