Over at my DigiDrawn digital stamp site, I have been asking for ideas and a pile of books was one suggestion... so I thought they would go great with my Tilda Writing Diary stamp.
I have created two images in the set; one with ten books and a shorter stack of five books. You can use them together, separately, flipped, with Tilda or Edwin perched atop or beside them! The great thing about digistamps is you can also resize them to use with the adorable Mini Maggies too! These would be great for school images or to celebrate "I Love To Read Month" THIS month!
I'm amazed my cats never stole it before I taped it down ;)
I can't recall the patterned paper I used, but with the script image it seemed to work. I matched the mats to the colours in the pattern and inked them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The green vine is made using Martha Stewart's Vine Trim punch. The roses are from Wild Orchid, natch.
Funny story about the ribbon though. My family will confirm (with a huge sigh and rolling eyes, I must add) that I throw NOTHING away I think I will use again. This ribbon is proof of that. It is one of four long pieces I had kept when I bought some soft plush blankets for the chair in my craftroom. Each piece had two velcro ends so they would hold together when wrapped around the blankets... so I just clipped off the velcro on one piece and used my Bow Easy to make the bow. Another piece was wrapped around the card. I LOVE the thick width and the colour was perfect!
Here are the Copics used on Tilda (I used a whole variety of colours on the books and won't list them all here!):
