IC204 ~ Franz Porcelain from Precious Possessions {10-31-09}
3 Attachment(s)

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

I'm very happy to be filling in for Stephanie today! I hope you enjoy this week's challenge!! (Thanks Steph!!)

Nothing "spooky" at all about this week's inspiration website!! The website is called Precious Possessions. They have an amazing collection of beautiful Franz Porcelain to choose from. "Franz Porcelain is a collection of Chinese porcelain, blending oriental character with Art Nouveau style. Inspired by the love for nature, Franz Porcelain developed delicate butterflies, fragile flowers, whimsical animals, and other motifs. Every piece of Franz Porcelain blends the essence of Oriental culture with the styling inspired by Western artistry."

Below I have attached some samples pieces from the website that you can use, but feel free to browse the rest of the website to find other samples of Franz porcelain artwork to inspire you!

This week several of my stamping pals :) have joined in to bring you some samples:
Here's my sample: Franz Porcelain Card
Here's Joan Ervins sample: Forever Wedding Collection
Here's Francie G.'s sample: Christmas Chickadee
Here's Anne's (JDMommy) sample: Violets and Zebra Stripes
Here's Julia's (Artystamper) sample: Fall Vase
and here's Charlene's (LilLuvsStamping) sample: Delighting in Franz Porcelain

Be sure to use the keyword: IC204 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

Quick Link: The IC204 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached images or check out the Elum website links. Get your inspiration from the colors, style, detail or even the subject, just whatever kicks your mojo into gear!! Enjoy wherever your creative journey takes you today! Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ There are no rules and no card is 'wrong'. There is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. Come on and play along!!

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). Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Wonderful choice of site for the challenge, Anne. It was fun looking at all the ideas. Then I had to think of what stamps I had that I would be able to use! Daisies & Butterflies was it!

Here's my card:

Hi Anne, you are such a darling for filling in for Stephanie and with all that inspiration from the girls! WOW It gave me alot more mojo this morning, but starting up softly, I haven't done my last card yet!:p I had to go with blue, it's my favourite colour you know.

Here is the inspiration pieces:

Prima ballerina vase


luminescent platter

and here is my card:

Sisterly love

Thanks for looking and enjoy

VondaYoungkin 10-31-2009 06:22 AM

Thanks, that site has alot inspiration. Just gorgeous!
Here's my take on the waterlily collection:

Cook22 10-31-2009 06:57 AM

The Peacock's New Clothes
Bit late off the mark, with making candied popcorn this morning for any trick-or-treaters we might have.
Wow, that's some site. If I had the money, I'd have loved some stuff. If I had more stamps, I could be making cards all day! The hummingbirds, the irises...
Hope to be back with a cherry-blossom inspired one later.
