Bye Bye BIrdie Brown Blog Hop

Today I am participating in a very special blog hop in honor of Torico, illustrator and owner of Birdie Brown digital stamps.  Sadly, Torico announced that she will closing her shop at the end of November.  You can read post on the Birdie Brown blog HERE.  

Fortunately, Torico will continue to be an illustrator for There She Goes Clear Stamps so you will still be able to purchase her images in clear stamp form.  However, we wanted to give her digital shop a well deserved farewell so a group of designer, led by Lesley Croghan, have gotten together to surprise Torico with a blog hop featuring Birdie Brown images.  

I decided to color up the Elf digital image.



I colored my image with copics and paired some PP from the Echo Park Tis the Season 6x6 paper pad with some PTI white and MFT black licorice CS,  I stamped an image and sentiment from the MFT ornament Banner Builder stamp set.




Ready to hop?  If you want to start from the beginning, head to Lesley's blog.  If you came here from Lesley's blog, the next stop is Chaitali's blog

  12. I'm enjoying the Hop, Kim. It's a great way to celebrate Torico's talents. I have this image, too. I can't wait to color it up! I love the way your shading shows folds and has deep contrast. I'll be using it as a model for mine.
