wow.. what a lovely coloring. I've really loved #24.
If it's not a problem, could you give me some tips
how to achieve this effect?

Thank you! :D I used gradient maps and variations (both PS tools, though there may be similar tools in other graphics programs, I think?) to get the coloring on #24. I applied a gradient map (#4b3850 --> #d9b199; blending mode: Normal) to the image (which I already cleaned up and added some textures/adjustment layers to) to get the coloring on the right side. Then I duplicated the resulting image and played around with variations settings to get the coloring on the left.

It's really a lot of trial-and-error with GM and V settings; it took me a few color combos to get the result I wanted. I hope this explanation makes sense!

Thank you so much! ♥ I struggled with the coloring (especially with the hockey icons, bright red jerseys >:() so I can't help but be pleased with the results \o/

What pretty soft, colouring! I'm saving 8, 14 and 15 - thanks.

And I'm glad the CL caps came in useful - I stopped making them because I thought no one wanted them!
