Rustic Colouring

My card the other day used some of the Country Lane DSP, and a sentiment from the Contry Home stamp set, both part of the Country Lane Suite in the Holiday Catalogue. If you missed that card, you can see it here. Today my card uses some of the other stamps in the Country Home stamp set. It is a fantastic set with some great stamps that have a real down home country feel.

Here is the whole stamp set.

I love how the flowers and the jug are two seperate stamps, giving lots of flexibility to make different looks with these stamps. Since it is a photopolymer set, it is easy to align the images any way you like, then on to the colouring! For this card I decided to use an Aqua Painter, and just one colour of ink for the flowers - Mango Melody. By changing how much water I had on my Aqua Painter, I was able to easily change the intensity of the Mango Melody, and make the flowers look like they were coloured with different colours. I used Garden Green for the leaves, and Crumb Cake along with a bit of Mango Melody to colour the jug. The Tin Tile TIEF (also part of this Suite) makes the perfect background for my country home themed card.
