Coloring is therapy to me.. I love to color.  So I love the outline image stamps from Stampin' Up! and I tried out my Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils on my Country Home stamp set and love the results!!  I used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the colors on the Whisper White cardstock.

In addition to having fun coloring on this card, I also love the background!! I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder found on page 43 in the 2018 Holiday catalog (same page as the Country Home stamp set, and the beautiful Country Lane designer paper). 

After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile Embossing folder, I used a sponge dauber to add a little Gray Granite and Soft Suede ink to the raised parts.. just here and there to give it a bit of a weathered look.

After coloring the greenery/flowers and the can with the Watercolor Pencils and blending with a Blender Pen, I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the can.. I love it!

 The card base is a standard size Thick Whisper White folded card, and the tin tile embossed piece is 4" x 5-1/2".  I used a strip of Country Lane designer paper peeking out the right side, and some 3/16" braided trim on the left side of the card.   The little die cut shape was a limited time product a couple months ago and is retired, but you could easily use a die cut oval.
