30 Day Coloring Challenge 3 - Day 21

 Hello Friends! I've got another quick post for you today. I am suffering from eyestrain and I was told to rest my eyeballs for a few days, but...there's a coloring challenge going on!! LoL! All kidding aside, I will rest them, but I am still going to color!

*Note: For some reason, when I transfer my pictures into Blogger, they get blurry. They seem to be fine as long as I keep them small. So, please click on the images to enlarge them.

Today, I printed out some Birdie Brown digi's I've had for a while. The illustrator behind that name is Torico and you can find her adorable stamps for sale at My Favorite Things. These were images she either gave away as freebies, or I purchased them in her Etsy shop, which is now closed. Anyway, I printed these out on my favorite card stock and colored them with Copic markers, which are a lot easier for my eyes than any other coloring medium.

Aren't these images the cutest things?! I was so sorry when she decided to close her Etsy shop! I am very thankful for the images I was able to collect. I fell in love with the sweet little Autumn Gnome and just had to color him with colors that reflect the season.

 And that is it from me today. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the visit!


digital stamps: Just for You, Gnome Boy Fall, Dreamin'(Birdie Brown)
card stock: Cryogen Iridescent White(PaperTemptress)

What a sweet little elf image! I'm not used to seeing them with anything other than toys. ;) I love how you've colored him. Looking forward to seeing him make an appearance on a finished project one of these days. Hope your eyes are starting to feel rested. Hugs!

Gosh, Barb! I'm so sorry that your eyes are giving you fits right in the middle of the challenge. That is NO fun. Interesting that coloring with the Copics doesn't seem to bother you. Maybe you are tooooo focused using the pencils? In any case, I do hope you'll rest them and have no further issues. Because, seriously? If we don't get to see more adorable images colored like this little elf, I will be very, very sad. He is absolutely adorable! I hope we see the snow people and the little birdies colored in at some point too. Please take care, Barb. Big hugs!!
