Mother's day week - Karen

When Karen was growing up there were fuschias everywhere...the garden, house, even on pictures!!!!! So I had to go for the Fuschia Decoupage Set didn't I?
We have several designs for those Decoupage sets, and they are a lot of fun to work with. Check them out. 

For the background, cover the base card with Distress Inks (I used Scattered Straw) then overstamp with a crackle stamp with dots of Brilliance Ink...I used 2 shades for this.

Stamp the main image onto plain card then stamp the leaves all around it. I used Memento black.

Colour in with your chosen medium. I used watercolour pencils for this. Cut out the background behind the flowers and then around the edges close to the outer leaves. 

 Place the image onto the base card using sticky foam pads.
To make the stamens I took short lengths of thread, tied a knot i the ends and painted on PVA glue. When dry the stamens don't flop about!
