Bloggers Challenge week 22-Inspiration comes in all forms
What inspires you???? Inspiration comes in all forms, People, places, things can all be wonderful sources of inspiration! This weeks Challenge was to create a card inspired by something else.
Problem for me this week was that I was not feeling very inspired. Most of the time I am soaking in all of the stimulus that I can, paying attention to the colours of nature, perusing the layouts of billboards that I see in my daily travels, making a mental note of new colour combinations while cruising the aisles of my favourite clothing stores...................this week, it just wasn't happening for me. So what did I do??? Took a virtual trip to Pottery Barn to find a source for my card...........and I found it very very quickly!
Isn't this the sweetest little serving plate. I just loved this Christmas Dinnerware's clean and simple design. This image definitely inspired me to pull out my never used Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge and make a card, which worked up very quickly. I used a tannish Bazzil Card stock for my Reindeer Base, Basic Black for the Hooves and Burgundy for the nose and collar. I attached mini bells with mini glue dots and added black line to the deer image with a sharpie. The card looked a little bare with just the reindeer and sentiment, so I made a little liquid applique snow fall in my craft room. Hope you enjoy my cute little guy as much as I enjoyed creating him.
I'm heading over to my fellow challenge bloggers sites to see what inspires them. Won't you join me???? Check my sidebar for the links!!!
