Welcome to another Watercooler Challenge. This time it's all about inspiration. Yes, we need inspiration to create our projects, but this is a special type of inspiration. It's an inspirational photo presented by one of our Watercooler Artists, Bev. Here is the photo with which she challenged us:
I love the colours and I love the shapes. In fact, whenever I have looked at the photo, the first thing I see is three sitting cats, probably because it appears there are ears. On second glance, I see three beautifully robed maidens with their arms to the sky. I didn't have a stamp or punch for either of those ideas.
I did, however, have an Owl Builder Punch which had just about the perfect shape, albeit a bit less streamlined. The more I thought about using the punch, the happier I felt. It's always a good thing to feel happy, going into a new project.
My owls are not your ordinary, rather drab coloured owls. My owls have a strong fashion sense and are best buds. Good thing I had the From the Garden bundle for an appropriate sign. The colours I've used on top of the Naturals White base are Elegant Eggplant and Marina Mist. I've added a layer of Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper (SAB) sponged with Marina Mist (top) and Smoky Slate (bottom). I love how the sponging brings out all those leaves and branches, don't you? My owls are a combination of Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Old Olive; Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana; and Pacific Point, Strawberry Slush and Marina Mist. A bit of Whisper White and Basic Black for the eyes and they're done.
To see all the creations, check out the Watercooler Challenge. You can also add your own card with the Linky and show us your inspiration. Just think, if your card is picked as the winner, you'll get to post the Winner's Badge on your own blog.
