Dream, Believe, Imagine...Inkspirational Challenge #133~Designer's Choice: Graffiti

Hello,

First, the exciting news:  We're delighted to tell you that Kylie has re-joined the Inkspirational Design Team! Woot Woot!!!

Second, welcome to our new Inkspirational Challenge #133~Designer's Choice, chosen by Pia , who's currently taking a short break from DT duties.  Her choice: graffiti stamping.


Research required for this one...and depending where I went, 'graffiti' took on different meanings. Finally, I decided to create this (highly inspired by Shery's fantastic card here), which I think 'may' cross the line between graffiti and mixed media!  If so...oops!  Then again, when I see the train cars covered with 'graffiti' - images, words, paint splashes....all sorts of things manifest. Besides, I just plain old loved Shery's card *grin*


Please head over to see what my awesome team-mates have created; I know their graffiti is probably more true to the form than mine:
Shauna
Sandie
Yvonne
Kylie
Nonni
Marina 

So...you know what's next!  Bring your graffiti to the gallery! Looking forward to seeing you there!
Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!

  2. I think it works wonderfully! I like how you used the butterfly stencil for your background and the bit of brick wall definitely gives the rest of the card a grafitti vibe. Terrific job!! :)

  5. If it's not graffiti, it's still pretty darn good, Carol. I love the stencil to add color to the background and all the other elements you used.

  8. Great twist - it actually reminds me a bit of (the artist) Banksy, in a weird way.

  9. I am with Marina! I walk along a pathway and there are lots of graffiti sprayed on on the walls of the arches and none are as good as this x

  17. I love your interpretation of the theme. I'm not sure where I could take it. Love the splash of colour against the white with the black stamping. Very creative!

  18. I think that your take on graffiti is absolutely perfect - it really does remind me of the 'urban art' that I see downtown. A wonderful take on the inspiration photo too - I love how you reversed the colours of the background and the butterflies! Thanks so much for playing along at TIME OUT!
