EtsyInspired #97~ Mermaid's Tears


This week's EtsyInspired shop is Mermaid's Tears. They have jewelry made from sea glass. I love the idea of finding something so beautiful just laying on the beach and making things out of it. The designs vary from whimsical to elegant. This week, Mermaid's Tears is offering one item valued up to $25 as a prize.

To play along:

~Go to the Mermaid's Tears shop and find an item to be inspired by.

~Make any creation that you would like and post a on the EtsyInspired #97 post on the EtsyInspired blog by Friday, July 23rd by noon Pacific time.

~Please give credit to the shop/item you found your inspiration from.

~If you upload to an online gallery, please use keyword EIC97


This week, we also have a prize from a sponsor to offer you. The sponsor is Denami Designs. They have all sorts of amazing items like stamps, card stock, buttons, etc... Denami is offering up a $30 gift certificate to the winner. (Yet another week where I wish I could win!)



Here is my card for this week. It is inspired by the heart piece above. The background is actually purple and silver foil paper, the peachy tone you see on the card is ME. Teehee. They paper is from Kaisercraft, Lilac Avenue. The doily is from my friend Sarah's shop. And the stamps are from Clear and Simple Stamps. I'm also entering this is Moxie Fab World's Classy and Elegant challenge.
