Tall Tales

My stamp room is almost to the point where I can start stamping once again. Hopefully tomorrow while out and about, I’ll find some kind of ribbon storage. After viewing many photos and videos of other creative spaces, I have some ideas of what I would like.

This is a card that I made a few weeks ago for one of my favorite new authors, Vicki Tyley. I absolutely enjoyed the books that Vicki has previously written, and was thrilled when Vicki sent me advanced copies of her latest books. If you like mystery and suspense I would recommend that you read her books; Thin Blood, Sleight Malice and Brittle Shadows… you wouldn’t be disappointed.

Tall Tales

For this card I used the image Tall Tales, I thought the little bunnies reading would be an ideal for Vicki. The image is colored using Prismacolor Pencils with no blending mediums, which as of lately is becoming a preferred method of coloring. I still need more practice with blending colors, but I’m getting there.

Thanks for visiting ~ Jovi

  1. Oh goodness, you did a beautiful job of this. I think your coloring is wonderful. I hope you'll post a photo of your ribbons once you get them organized. I have some organized in my Stampin'Up! containers but the rest is in jars and drawers.
