Fabulous Fuchsias

Hi there!  Sharing a card made with a gorgeous stamp set by Clearly Besotted.  This is a 4.5 x 4.5" card.  To create this card I began by stamping some bristol paper with the plain flower from the set, then matched up the branch to the flower.  I then cut a mask for it and also for the flower bud so they wouldn't 'bump' into each other.  I used some gold embossing powder and then colored them with some zig clean color markers.  I splattered the finished panel with the colors from the flowers, die cut a square frame and foam mounted the frame itself so that the flowers were depressed.  I stamped the sentiment at the top and bottom in a gray so it wouldn't be so harsh.  Lastly, I used some clear Nuvo drops - which I've never used before and boy, do I like them!  I mounted this finished panel and frame to some green cardstock and I must say I really enjoyed making this one.  Thanks for reading this and the materials used are listed at the bottom.  As a side note, I've begun to include a bookmark in each of my cards to family.  If you're interested in how that came together, just leave a comment and I'd be happy to post the process.
