Are you ready for Challenge #44 at Crafty Gals Corner
This week the challenge is Autumn Hues!

Here is your inspiration for this challenge:


I love the colors for this project! It was loads of fun! Here is a picture of my project:

You're My Cup of Tea - Front of card

Inside of card

My husband and I will be celebrating our 44th anniversary in November, so I thought this was the perfect digital for that! And of course, the color hues are perfect for a man's card! I cut out a cardstock piece 8.5"x 4.25" and folded it in half. This card is entirely made out of paper from the Paper Temptress papers. I colored in my digital using partly Prima Watercolor pencils and partly Prismacolor pencils. I use them like watercolor pencils, and they work great! 

To do the skin tone, I always start with a light flesh color, and then darken it up. I always start with the face. I then used several layers of color to obtain the color of the cup. Once I got the digital colored in, I layered a piece of the Autumn Breeze Overlay (Autumn Breeze), layered it on top of the card, then the digital. I then took a cotton ball and covered it with fingernail polish remover, then rubbed it onto the paper (inside, right). Then I placed the underside of the overlay on top of the inside card, and rubbed the overlay with a popsicle stick, then removed it and I now had a "printed" page full of leaves! The heart you see is a wood chip that I rubbed metallic rub-ons on. The ribbon you see if also from Paper Temptress, called Ivory Feather Edge. The little bits of red is Red Glossy. 

I hope you enjoy this project. And I hope to see you in the challenge! I always love seeing your creative juices flowing!


Paper: Dark Orange BASIS, Red Glossy, and Sweet Tooth.
