Light Blue Fuchsias

Hi All!

This project is an example of how the Cascading Fuchsia collection practically makes projects themselves!  This wall hanging started out as a card, but it ended up being a bit more 3-D than even I could justify, so I added a hanger and it became a wall hanging!

I started with a light blue panel from the Everyday Heroes Collection because of the blue tones it contains.  I used the same paper collection and stamped 3 of each size of the fuchsias and assembled them.  Next I stamped and die cut leafy branches onto gold metallic paper and shaped them.  Once I had all the dimensional floral pieces, I die cut two lattice shapes that would become "gates" on my background.

I tucked in a cute Tim Holtz Bird Cage (that I prepared with gold paper and a tiny bird) behind the "gates" and proceeded to add and embellish my scene with the fuchsias and leaves. I used a gold Krylon pen all around the edge of the base panel.  I cut a sentiment strip from the collection and edged it with gold as well.  Finally, I added a maroon ribbon to the top of the display. 

Once it was all done, I could tell this was not going to hold up to just a standing card!  So I adhered the whole thing to mat board, punched a couple of holes with my Crop-a-dile, and added eyelets wire.
