Inspiration Challenges are perfect for the beginner.  The designer is presented with a picture or a scrap of material, etc.  For me, the great part of this type of challenge is that it is free-style!  You choose what inspires you in the photo!  I found this wonderful retro print in one of my stacks and it seemed the perfect mat for the colors I wanted to pull from the inspiration photo.   I used the basic Autumn colors: Brown, Orange, and Green, but it was the soft aqua in the chair that is the focal of this design.  I am looking forward to playing more inspiration challenges. 


About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
