Hello friends! I'm so pleased to be joining a wonderful group of stampers to tell Torico how much we love her designs and to help send off her lovely digital design shop, Birdie Brown, in style!
Torico will be closing Birdie Brown at the end of November, so it's time to grab your must have stamps now! The hop today started over at Lesley's blog. Start there for some amazing inspiration!
I have used the oh-so-adorable Birthday Bear stamp today. I LOVE how Torico illustrates animals, and her bears are my absolute favourite. I'm a sucker for a gorgeous large image and this one fits the bill!
I printed on watercolour paper and heat set with my heat gun so I could colour with distress markers. I wasn't sure if it would work, but no ink bleeding - yay! (I recommend testing your particular printer ink, I use a basic Canon ink jet printer and heat set for a couple of minutes)
I added some highlights to the balloons with a Picket Fence marker and covered them with stickles.
Here's the inside - I've used sentiments from Cinnamon by There She Goes.
Torico, I am SO glad you will still be illustrating for There She Goes, I love your amazing designs - thank you for all the inspiration! Big hugs!
It's time to head on over to see the lovely Jenny now - and here's the entire list of hoppers for you to browse!
