Default IC854 The Postmans Knock April 16, 2022

Hi, & Welcome to this week's Inspiration Challenge. This week we are headed to Pinterest specifically looking at The Postman's Knocks board collection which starts here.
There is also a blog for tutorials found here. The very first thing I ever collected was Postage Stamps and so, I find my self drawn to envelope art and calligraphy and the whole section of Art involved with happy mail besides making cards. I had seen a few things that caught my eye. I am looking forward to seeing what sparks you all, have fun with this.


Have fun with this,
I am looking forward to see what sparks you all.
Use the keyword: IC854(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words. Include your inspiration image in the description of your project being sure to only include links from The pinterest board or store

Use the Keyword IC854
Here is a link to the IC854 Gallery

Here is a link to My Sample


Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board? Be sure to check it out!

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little,
images to choose from, I've uploaded 10 of my favorite designs.
So just stick with one of those for your inspiration.
Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS.


**Please note: If you are unable to view the Inspiration Site in your country, please use one of the pictures provided for you (thumbnails below). Unfortunately, we have no control over the sites' viewing areas. **


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 post in this thread. Thanks for Joining along with us!

If you would like the chance to guest design with us, simply PM one of the IC hostesses with a site that has not been used before. If your site is selected we will send you a PM with all the details for your week as Guest Designer!


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE? Since so many are having trouble grabbing the link to just one picture, please try this:

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

I loved Lindsey's Pinterest boards and pinned a lot. For this challenge I was intrigued by several on her images board with what appear to be watercolor backgrounds.

So here is my card
And here is the main, but one of three, on Lindsey's boards that so inspired me. Watercolor squares
