share your spark fridays ...

Happy Friday, everyone!  Man, it's been a long week.  *smile*  I didn't have much time for crafting, but I'm catching up on that to-do list and things are slowly getting back to normal!  Which means more crafty goodness time to come!  So without further ado ... I welcome you, once again, to this week's edition of share your spark fridays!

As always, I want to thank everyone who was able to play along last week!  I thought it was a fun challenge: use one image multiple times.  Let's take another look at what everyone made ...

There's a lot of inspiration in that list!  Be sure to check 'em out and leave 'em a little blog love!  *wink*

This week's spark was inspired by the A Muse News Blog post today!  The Muses made Halloween decorations and I thought ... you could make all kinds of things besides cards!  So this week's spark is to ...

Make something other than a card!

The possibilities are endless here ... there are SO many things you could do!  Holiday deocrations, table settings, art to hang on your wall, banners, etc! 

Here's what I did ...

2008.09.12.022 
I made fall napkin rings! 

I stamped the pumpkin in brown, then I colored it with those go-to Copic pumpkin colors I told you about the other day (Y38 and YR16).  My favorite way to color pumpkins, this one in particular (it's my favorite A Muse pumpkin!) is to color it all in with Y38 and then highlight with YR16 along the lines.  And for these, I traced the darker line with a glue pen and added glitter.  It REALLY sparkles.  (I also attached ribbon to the backs with glue dots!)

Now it's your turn!  I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with this week!  And don't forget to share your spark by leaving a comment on this post with a link to what you make!

Hi Heather! Here's my spark; http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1058105?cat=500&ppuser=90425
It was a great spark (they are all fun and great spearks, but this one really made me think differently!!), as I have never made anything decorative before. Thank you! I hope you like it!
