Watercolor Geraniums

A quick, but kinda fancy birthday card featuring a new geranium set & new, fancy die. I used some Peerless watercolor sheets to paint the geraniums.

A big congrats to Christine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS842)! She has a fabulous gallery full of gorgeous florals & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the circular flower element but used a stamped & watercolored floral instead of die cut flowers. I also used different dies, colors & changed mine to an A6 card instead of square.

After stamping the geraniums onto watercolor paper, I used a couple of paintbrushes & Peerless watercolor booklet to paint them. Had to do a little out of the box when I die cut them to keep from cutting off the leaves on the right. The large, fancy circular die was used on some maroon paper. After I cut it, I liked the way it looked when I put it back inside the cutout, so I used this way.

For the Happy Birthday, I used the big Happy & the small Birthday, stamped them w/ a combo of Versaclair Glamorous & Purple Delight to get the color I wanted, then die cut them. The greeting & flower circle were popped up a bit.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
