My 2nd to last card to share with you from my craft retreat back in October! Country Home has by far been one of my favorite stamp sets. I have always been a fan of rustic and country themed decor, so this set speaks to me on so many levels. I decided I needed to try a purple, I don’t use enough purple!

Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape make a perfect match. I love the Mini Ruffled Ribbon, available in the 2017-2019 In-Colors! It looks great just folded and tucked behind a focal point, as shown my card here. Of course, I had to smooch my background, one of my favorite and most-used background techniques. Don’t know what the smooching technique is? You can download my step-by-step tutorial here: Smooching Technique
This time I used Shimmery White Cardstock for my floral and milk can images & watercolored them with an Aqua Painter and Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks. The trick for a great watercolor look is to add color in thin layers, allow it to dry completely and then add more color for depth and shading.
