It's time for the release of the new Cascading Fuchsia Collection! What a beautiful collection this is too! For my card this week, I used the Fuchsia Cluster Cling Set.
I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits and die cut it with Labels 28 using the "out of the box" technique so one of the leaves and the flower bud hang outside the die cut. Here's a little close up of the image for you so you can see the coloring and the bud and leaf extended outside the die cut.
I kept my design very clean and simple, but I'm happy with how it turned out and how you are too!
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see the gorgeous creations by the designers this week! Also check out the new video by Emma Lou showing you how to create the beautiful fuchsia flowers with the stamps and matching dies.
