IC311 ~ Singing Cat Studio {11-19-11}

Inspiration Challenge 311 ~ Singing Cat Studio

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the wonderful Etsy Store of Singing Cat Studio featuring polymer clay components colored with mica powders and sealed with a clear, permanent, water-resistant acrylic finish. The artist adds a wide range of elements to her creations, including vintage and antique buttons to contemporary filigrees and stampings.

Remember, out of respect for the creative originality of this talented artisan, please do not print out photos of the items to use directly on your project or copy a piece exactly. :D

I have asked Audrie (girlgeek101) to join me in making an additional inspired card sample this week.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Singing Cat Studio that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC311 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

girlgeek101’s sample ~ Celebrating Snow Butterflies

My sample ~ Copper Birthday

IC311 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. 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.

Here is my try at it. I've been in a bit of a funk lately, not crafting except when needed. This challenge helped me create just for the fun of it!
