sandpaper, pencils and fuchsias


I finally got around to making flowers from my
Foamiran and decided to make fuchsias.
These are made using a rose die, hot iron, glue gun
and the use of stamens for the center.
Heartfelt Creations Vining fuchsia, stamped and fussy cut
then added to my card.




I am also using a technique called
Sanded Pencil background. 
I first found this on Karen's blog who gave us this link to the tutorial.

Different and pretty nice result too using
pencils, sandpaper and a stencil.
