This large stamp from Serendipity is one of the best Geranium images I've seen. Here it is in traditional red, which works well for a cheerful get well card, but there are so many other color possibilities I want to try.
I used one of my favorite techniques here, "Out of the Box," inspired by this beautiful card by Jenny Gropp:
I watercolored the image using reinkers and my aqua painter, and added some touches and shading with markers. After cutting it out I gave it a good dose of shimmer spray, which of course doesn't show up in the photo but I love the effect on a watercolored image. And it matches nicely with the shimmery white cardstock.
The finished size of this card is 5 1/4 inches square.
