Inkspirational Challenge #218~Photo Inspiration...Squid Shaker Birthday

Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #218, where we have this whimsical, quirky photo to spark creativity!


At first glance, you may find the photo a tad 'odd' (which I certainly did) and a bit daunting as a prompt (which I also did), however...it is filled with a plethora of possibilities! Polka dots galore, tentacles galore, red/pink/white galore...and that's just a start. Sunglasses, a purse and pops of colour along the right edge are visible, too.  Loads of entry points!

As for me, I brought out my Studio Katia dots stencil, Under the Sea squid, Kobi gift and hat and the shell shaker die.  Put them all together and here's what happened....


Quirky and whimsical! I didn't add a sentiment, as the images make clear this squid is off to a birthday party! Such fun!

My wonderful teammates have interpreted the photo in most delightful fashions. Please visit and leave them some love, which I know will be deeply appreciated:



Thank you for dropping by!

Oh my. That IS a very unique inspiration photo. And you met the challenge head on and crushed it. What a fantastic card, Carol. I love that wonderfully rich red color and all your fun polka dots. The shell die cut is perfect, too. Excellent work, my friend!

"a tad odd.." haha. But your card is quirky and fun and, as always, beautifully put together,

I am in awe of the fact that you not only had all these perfect elements for the inspiration photo, but also that they all come from one company! (A Canadian one, even better!) This is so much fun.
