Tuesday the 31st is definitely the last Tuesday of the month, so it's Tickle a Teapotter time and Sue is our guest hostess with her book-cover inspired challenge HERE.
My book was Reading Behind Bars by Jill Grunenwald, and I used the pile of books on the cover as my inspiration. I've put a photo of the cover in the challenge thread.
The background is IO Cover-a-Card Bookshelves stamped in Versafine Smokey Grey on a grungy gel print on copy paper.
For the main image I stamped the Unity books on white card, coloured them with pencils and then coloured and sponged around them. I also drew in some bars. The little jail birds were stamped and fussy-cut; the Ohio prison uniform is blue, so that's what they're wearing. I used an oval that was lying on my desk to frame them, embossing it with Textile ef and sponging with brown. The image piece is popped up on foam, and I added decorative black corners.

Prickley Pear Jailbirds fussy-cut, coloured with Polychromos (blue prison uniform) and perched on a stack of books - Unity Hodge Podge of Happiness. Elizabeth Crafts oval.

Well - those little bandits made it TO the pile of books - let's hope they will soon open them! The library shelves you created are a book lover's paradise and I love the contrast between that staid image in counterpoint to your whimsical focal point.
