It's time for the release of the new Farmers Market Collection from Heartfelt Creations! I love the harvest theme of this collection of fruits, herbs and vegetables along with bottles, jugs and vines. The designer papers have a wonderful color palette with tons of tags and labels you can use.
Here is my first project with this collection.
I used the image from the Apple Harvest Cling Set and colored it with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. The "frame" was created using one of the card fronts from the designer papers, cardstock and the Cut Mat Create Dies.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!
