EtsyInspired #122 - Modern Bird

Good morning! It's time to be EtsyInspired by the neatest shop! Modern Bird handcrafts silver jewelry! Now, I've done a lot of different arts and/or crafts in my time, but metalsmithing has never been one of them. That is something I leave to those who know what they're doing. Laura Flavin knows what she's doing. Her jewelry reflects themes of love, nature, peace and growth.

Here are the three pieces I chose as my inspiration this week. Yes, I couldn't choose just one!

I chose to stamp the flower trio from Our Craft Lounge's Spring Garden in Barn Door Distress Ink to give a watermark look on the card base, but it doesn't show very well in the photo. The colours are from Color Dare #92. The sketch is a new challenge (Sketchy Sundays) from Tiffany Johnson, who used to be an EIC team member! Hi Tiff!!

This week the EtsyInspired Challenge is being sponsored by Kutz. That means one challenge player will win a Silhouette cutout from the Kutz Etsy shop.

Another participant will be winning this super sweet little birdie necklace from Modern Bird, our challenge shop. Doesn't that make you want to play along?
Remember, you do not have to make a card. You don't even have to papercraft. Just create something inspired by the Modern Bird Etsy shop. Be as creative as you want to be and post a link to your creation on the EIC blog no later than 12 noon Pacific time on January 21, 2011.

Head on over and see what the rest of the DT has to share today. You know it'll be awesome!!



P.S. I'll be back into the swing of things (aka blog comments, working on organizing this disaster I call a desk...) this weekend. My back is feeling much improved today. I know better than to overdo it, but I sure am glad to be off the sofa!
