Etsy Inspired #50

Happy Saturday!!!!! It's time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge. Can you believe it? Where are these weeks going???

This week's inspiration store is Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage. A great store full of handmade sewn items like purses, bags, pincushions, books, etc. I picked this drawstring bag as my inspiration piece.

I created my card using images from our sponsor this week Ildi, Co. This is Cuddles Kuma Sitting. I sized him down and created some DP using the image for the top of the card. Then I printed one out much larger for the main image. I colored all of them with Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS.

This week, Mrs. Kwitty is offering a memo book cover and set of matching vintage button paper clips as the prize. All you have to do to win is pick any item from the Mrs. Kwitty's shop to be inspired by and make a creation of your choice. Your creation can be anything i.e. a card, a drawing, a layout, a cake, a piece of jewelry, etc... Take a picture of your creation and leave a link to Ashley's blog post by Aug 28 at noon Pacific time. You will be entered in a drawing to win the card of your choice! If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC50.

We also have a special sponsor this week! Ildi, Co. is the company I am currently designing for. They are a new digital stamp company that offers the cutest little bear stamps....with so many different types on the horizon! On top of the drawing for the memo cover, you will also be entered to win 3 free digital images and a 10% off coupon for your next order.

Make sure to check out all the other Design Team member's blogs for even more inspiration.....
