Etsy Inspired #75 – Spin Designs


{supplies: cs – Bazzill; digital stamp – Dustin Pike; stamp – Bountiful Backgrounds (Verve); ink – Colorbox Chalk; nesti – Labels One; other – distressed stripes embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Prismacolor pencils, string}

This week’s Etsy Inspired shop is Spin Designs.  What a fabulous little shop.  They make some gorgeous jewelry.  I was inspired by this piece… mainly because I just love owls.

Our sponsor this week is Dustin Pike, the creative mind behind Doodle Dragon Studios.  Dustin creates some fabulous cartoon doodles… from dragons, to elephants to owls.  Yip, I said it, owls!!!  And I used his cute owl for my card this week.

The card base is cut from a Spellbinder Labels One Nestabilites.  The background is stamped with some green dots.  The brown section was embossed using the Distressed Stripes embossing folder.  I colored the owl with Prismacolor pencils and finished it off with some string.  May I dare say this could pass for a masculine card???  I hope so, I need one soon.

Here are the challenge deets:

**Be inspired by the Etsy shop and link your card on the {EIC blog} by Friday, February 19th, noon PST.

**If you use an online gallery tag your card as EIC75.

** Yip, there is a Prize – $10 credit to the Doodle Dragon Studio!!!

Be Inspired by the rest of the EIC design team!!!
