I do love this fuchsia stamp, which I got from Clearly Besotted about 3 years ago. I chose it because fuchsias are favourite plants of my mother and one of my oldest friends, little realising how much I would come to love using it. The sheet also has an apple blossom stamp and some very useful sentiments, so it gets used a lot.
The friend's birthday is approaching (it's OK, she doesn't read blogs) and this is the card I have made for her.
I embossed the bottom third of the card front using a Sizzix ef and Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Orchid for a faux letterpress effect, then stamped the flower and sentiment and coloured the image with pencils. I generally prefer to colour with Promarkers but I wanted this to be a one layer card and I don't like the way they show on the inside if not layered up.
