Autumn Harvest at Sweet Pea Stamps

I hope that you all are having a very creative week. This is my first project for the week and I would like to introduce you to one of Ching Chou Kuik’s digis, Autumn Harvest. This beautiful image is also available in rubber. Search for Plate #57.

Autumn Harvest was colored with Copics and trimmed with Spellbinder’s A2 Curved Matting Basics B. For more depth I added Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, Spiced Marmalade, and Seedless Preserves, to the border.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, E11, E13, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57, E49
BV20, BV23, BV25
G21, G24, G29
Y08, Y19
YR00, YR02, YR12, YR15, YR18
W0, W00, W1, W2
Colorless Blender

I added the butterfly as an afterthought.  Now that I am looking at it photographed, I think that I needed to add something darker to the edges. The butterfly was cut with Cheery Lynn’s Exotic Butterfly Small #2. I colored it with DI in Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves.

The backdrop for Autumn Harvest is Spellbinder’s Locking Loops, designed by Cindy Echtinaw. I love the Oriental feel of this die. The bling and flowers are from my stash.

Sweet Pea Stamps has some new Ching Chou Kuik’s digis. Don’t you need to go shopping? I know that I do. For artistic inspiration every day, check out Sweet Peas Design Team Blog.
