Sneak Peek...

Say Hello to of the new Fall Collections that is being introduced in the new Close To My Heart Line up!  Consider this a sneak peek, as this collection is not available to order until September 1!  I knew this set was a perfect match for the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love this fall cluster image that is exclusive to the Hawthorn Cardmaking Workshop.  The set comes comes complete with coordinating Thin Cut dies,  including the super cute banner die!  Here is a look at the complete workshop kit-

You have endless possibilities for coloring this cute image or not coloring at all!  I added color to my image with Prismacolor pencils, shaded with Gamsol.  I love this technique, I just scribble on some color and blend them all together effortlessly with the Gamsol.
