Bookish

As I've mentioned before, I just purchased some of my favorite Tiddly Inks digi stamps; including the wonderfully complete SchoolGirl set, which includes three complementary images. For color inspiration, I looked to the combo at Scrapmaster's Paradise, which seemed to lend itself well to books: Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Rose Red. I used the "leather" texturing plate to emboss the yellow and beige papers before printing the digis on them. I've found that starting with the Fiskars texturing tool and then going over it with my bone folder results in a really nice, durable paper.

I kept my color palette very simple, playing off the color combo challenge. I'm very pleased with how my copicing came out. For a final touch, I used the two titles that came in my Alice in Wonderland rubber stamp set for the front book. Ah, is there anything more beautiful than a book spine?!
