Have you ever been lacking inspiration for making a card or scrapbook page? Have you ever just stared at all that blank paper and wonder 'What do I do?' Well, look around you for inspiration! You can find ideas in your home, in magazines, on television, in nature. Splitcoaststampers.com has a challenge every Saturday regarding this concept. Its called 'The Inspiration Challenge'. Every week they feature a different 'Inspiration Piece' and challenge you to draw an idea from it and make a card. There are no other rules. Just 'create' whatever 'inspires' you from the piece. This weeks inspiration piece was 'Mondo Dishes' by Rosanna, Inc. and can be seen here:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forum/showthread.php?+=383748 I was inspired by the palm/bananna leaf in the dishes and the colors. So I pulled out my Stampendous 'Chanquito Monkeys' sets and stamped the leafs all over the background. I then stamped and colored my main image with copic markers and mounted it up on dimensionals. I added a ribbon as embellishment, and wa-la, my 'inspired' card is done. I didn't have to spend hours painstakingly trying to create something out of nothing. The paper colors and ribbon are 'Wild Wasabi' and 'Tempting Turqoise', all from Stampin Up!
So now its your turn, look around your home and in magazines. What do you see?
