For my design, I opted for bold bright colors of Fuchsia.
I took out the Altenew Inks and chose all the darker shades of red and purple.

By following the guide, each step of stamping was easy to do.

To complete the stamped die cut images, I created a green background with gradient effect.

Since Fuchsia are seen as hanging plants, that was how I positioned them.

I love the "dramatic" effect for this card-the dark bold colors and splatter!

Your fuschia are the same colors of the one's planted in a big oak half-barrel in my backyard. Such a joy to see Altenew come out with a stamp set for them. And what a set it is...your renditions is just gorgeous with it's varying floral hues. And, yes, you ARE awesome, too.
