This week's EtsyInspired shop is United Thread. This is a very cool store. They only sell original art, no prints. Each piece is signed and dated. They have drawings and watercolor paintings. All the art is sold on heavy weight archival watercolor paper. They have a wide selection of nature inspired art. Everything from animals (like owls and whale) to plants (like oxtails and ferns) to "floating farms." The colors are very subtle and earthy. The pieces so an interesting sense of whimsy to them. All drawings are shipped in a protective sleeve and have a sturdy back or envelope for support.
This week, United Thread is offering up a print valued at up to $25 of the winner's choice. Just pick any item in the United Thread shop to be inspired by. Make any creation that you would like and link it to the THIS POST using Mr Linky and you will be entered in a random drawing to win. Please link your creation by Friday March 5th by noon Pacific time. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC77.
This week's sponsor is Sakura of America. How lucky are we?!? They make an amazing line of pens. They have traditional gel pens, Glaze pens (which leave a nice sheen on the items), and Souffle pens (which have a matte finish and bump up slightly.) They also make the Quickie Glue pen which lets you do things like write and then coat it in glitter. It writes very finely. There are TONS of other products like stickers, erasers, adhesives and many others made from Sakura. Check them out!
