FUCHSIA ~ Say it with Flowers Collection


To continue with my little collection, I drew this beautiful flower called Fuchsia. When I started drawing these flowers, I wanted also to know the meaning of them in some parts of the world. I like to write here the meanings that I have found more positive. For example, Fuchsia has to do with kindness, amiability. It comes in different shades of purple, from very dark to very light pink, but I painted them with the colors I like the most.

Card supplies:
Image from EdithDesigns, Bazzill cardstock, 140lb watercolor cardstock, miscellaneous designer paper, Caran D’Ache watercolors, Ecoline inks, Fiskars punch papers, Nestabilities Labels 1, satin ribbon, rhinestones, silk green thread and my sewing machine.
