Beautiful Geraniums 04234
For my abundant geraniums, I used dye reinkers to water color two coral, one green then punched out the flowers (using several sizes of hydrangea petals) and the leaves then shaped them w/ a stylus. I can’t even tell you how long that took for all these little flowers & leaves. I used a white gel pen to add the lines & centers and a marker to add that distinctive “geranium” leaf line to the leaves.

The greeting was stamped on a die cut piece of textured white then added to a fancy die cut piece of leftover water colored bg and attached on a piece of green dp. The red frame between the white top and green dp layer, is out of the same water colored paper I used for the flowers. It was a little plain, so I stamped the geranium image w/ black ink to add a little something extra.
