IC154 ~ The Felted Garden {11-15-08}

Inspiration Challenge 154 ~ The Felted Garden

Iíve always been fascinated by the craft of felting, and when I saw the amazing felted creations at The Felted Garden, I was immediately inspired. Maybe youíll find inspiration in the color combinations, the designs, the warm wooly texture of the felt, or even just the idea of a winter scarf.

I have uploaded three of my favorites, but feel free to find inspiration from any creations on the website.

Use the keyword: IC154 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Caitlin Trellis

IC154 Gallery

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. 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.

> I just viewed a gallery inspired by my felted designs at www.feltedgarden.com. I must say I was really impressed with such lovely creations! I feel touched an honored that so many people find inspiration from my designs. Cardmaking and stamping have always been a secret passion of mine, but as I have stated before, I can only have one obsession at a time!
> I applaud all of you very creative stampers out there and will continue to peek in on your progress.
> All the best,
