EtsyInspired #27 - TR Mack Studio and a Sponsor

This week's EtsyInspired artist is TR Mack Studio. I was really drawn in by the stunning colors and the beautiful tree silhouettes. This is definitely my kind of art. Bold and eye catching. I enjoyed the backgrounds of the dots and mosaics. This shop offers original paintings, different sized prints, mini prints and ACEO prints. With the wide selection, it's perfect for any size home or if you just want to collect some small pieces of art. Believe it or not, the artist is self taught! Check out the TR Mack Studio shop and be EtsyInspired!

This week, things are a little different. Since the artist couldn't afford to do a giveaway at this time, I was just gonna give away something from my stash BUT through some crazy miracle Marti from Pez-A-Doodle emailed me and asked if she could sponsor a challenge. Isn't that AWESOME?

Now, if you haven't been to the Pez-A-Doodle shop, you must run there! They have the CUTEST exclusive stamps that are based on Marti's own little girl. I'm showing you an image of the sweet Pezzy who I am just in love with! Marti also carries whole lines of Studio G stuff, embellishments, mini kits, tools, Tim Holtz stuff, and much much more!

The awesome prize this week is a $20 gift certificate for ANYTHING in the Pez-A-Doodle shop! Ack! I would be like a kid in a candy store! You can also check out the Pez-A-Doodle blog for updates and fun challenges! Not only that, but Marti is giving you ALL a coupon code for 10% off your purchase!! Just use coupon code: etsy10.

This week's card was so hard for me! I've made three different cards and I don't really like any of them.  I think it's because I like the shop so much, I haven't been able to make anything that I find suiting.  This is Unity's Dream Tree and the sentiment is from Unity's Butterfly Beauty.  

Here's the list of the team, please visit their blogs for amazing inspiration!:
