Thanks a Latte - Tiddly Inks Design Team Call

So I am totally jumping out of my comfort zone and treading into scary territories. One of my favorite digital stamp designers is doing a design team call and I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, so here this is my entry post. The challenge is to make a card using your favorite Tiddly Inks Stamp. Let me tell you, it was hard to pick a favorite but I decided to use "thanks a latte" (you can purchase your own copy here at http://www.tiddlyinks.com/thanks-a-latte/.) I chose this image because it makes me think of one of my besties from college who shares my great love for coffee as well as crafting. She has since moved to Guam as a mission school teacher and I only see her once a year in the summer. I think I will send her this card after a bit.
So here is the card I made using this delightful image. IMG_20150418_203027
I colored it with my favorite method of coloring, Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Since the image made me think of my friend, I tried to color it to depict us sitting at one of our favorite coffee places. The girl on the left is supposed to represent my friend, and the girl on the right is supposed to represent me.  These are the colors I used.
For the girl on the left:
Skin: PC928 (Blush Pink) - PC1085 (Peach Beige) - PC927 (Lt. Peach) - PC1092 (Nectar)
Hair: PC997 (Beige) - PC914 (Creme) - PC942 (Yellow Ochre) - PC943 (Burnt Ochre)
Clothes: PC1099 (Espresso) PC931 (Dark Purple)
For the girl on the Right:
Skin: PC1083 (Putty Beige) - PC927 (Lt. Peach) - PC939 (Peach) - PC928 (Blush Pink)
Hair: PC1080 (Beige Sienna) - PC1081 (Chestnut) - PC937 (Tuscan Red)
Clothes: PC930 (Magenta) - PC1068 (10% French Grey)
For the Rest:
Chairs: PC905 (Aquamarine) - PC949 (Silver)
Table Cloth: PC905 (Aquamarine) - PC941 (Lt. Umber)
Cups: PC918 (Orange) - PC1070 (30% French Grey) - PC910 (True Green)
Here is a shot of the inside: I like leaving a large blank space so one could write a personal message. Sometimes I would put a scripture or inspirational saying, today I chose something about coffee.
