Feeling Inspired?

Hello all my friends! I know you're a Unity Addict because you are here - and because you're an addict, you know the best value in stamps is continually brought to you from Unity! 

This week, we have an inspiration challenge for you! This interesting photo has tons of neat components that you can draw from. You could use the colors, the arched doorway, the plants, the hanging could be clever and "dream up" what the building's purpose is and make a project along those lines. There are lots of options!

This is my little project, inspired by the photo. I loved the colors (which I didn't exactly have in my inks) and the rustic construction (see the cinder blocks on the side?). I pondered what this building was - a home that doubled as a worship site? I love the church bells! Hmmm. So that's kind of the thinking behind the tag.

I used one of my Tim Holtz texture fades on a #13 tag, and distress inks to approximate the building colors. I used the Ippity set, What Matters Most, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the images. I added gems from my IRock collection (did I mention that I ♥ this tool?), a felt flower from Papertrey Ink's die cuts, and some ribbon, button and fiber to top it off.

I hope you like my little project. It's so nice to finally have access to more of my supplies. Oh - I received the latest shipment of Ippity stamp sets, so you know I can supply your needs! I'll be posting images and prices soon!

Now - off you go. Check out the rest of the team's projects, and then link your inspired piece back to the All Things Unity blog by midnight Sept 18. Enjoy!!

Ta for now, ~ky
