Etsy Inspiration #122 Modern Bird
Good Morning & Happy Saturday!
Welcome to another Etsy Day!!! Our featured shop this week is called Modern Bird and she specializes in modern handcrafted silver jewelry. There are some beautiful pieces of jewelry in her store so please browse around for that perfect pic to inspire you. Modern Bird is offering the adorable petite bird necklace as a prize for a lucky winner and our sponsor Kutz is giving away a silhouette cut out to another fortunate player! How do you win? Visit the shop, pick your inspiration, make whatever your heart desires and link it to the EtsyInspired Challenge Blog.
I chose the Love Bird as my inspiration piece. I was browsing and as soon as I saw this piece, I pictured a black & silver Valentine's card. I know it may not be your usual colors for this Holiday but I think it's funny how we get inspired & I like being different :-) I used brushed silver cardstock as my base, textured my black background piece and used a pearl as an eyeball for my bird. I also embossed my sentiment & the French words underneath the bird to accent my card a bit more. Overall, I like the final result and I hope you do too!! For even more inspiration, check out the rest of the Design Team's work & leave them some love:
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the weekend!!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
