Heartfelt Fuschia Bouquet - Colours of 'Evelyn'

Well I'm still in catch up mode and here's another colouring sample ready for Oyster's Open Day on the 19th made using Heartfelt Creations Fuschia Bouquet.

I've always loved Fuschias, me Mam had some that were grown from cuttings off a plant her Mam had and whenever we moved house she took cuttings with us. In my garden I now have my own Fuschia grown from one of Mam's which I call 'Evelyn's Fuschia' after my Grandmother because I never knew it's proper name. 

I had wanted to colour this stamp with pinks and lilacs but my heart kept going back to Evelyn's colours so here it is, vibrant and deep reds and purples. It's the anniversary of my Mam's death this week so this one's for her.


BV000,BV02 and BV13; R24,R46 and R59; YG03,G94 and G99.

Penny Black sentiment die 'Splendid Wishes' and edges shaped with 'Stitched Edges'.
