IBS March Release: Iris

Welcome to day 2, Inspired by Stamping March Release Party!!
Today we have another set previews of these amazing stamp sets. 

Today I am showing off Iris
I am a HUGE sucker for flowers!!!
It does not matter what kind, I love anything and everything flower related. 
So when I received the Iris stamp set, I was overwhelmed with joy!!!
I stamped the Iris flower onto watercolor paper with Versamark embossing ink and embossed with fine detail black embossing powder.  I then colored the image with Tombow markers.  These markers are new to me and I am loving the vibrant colors they provide to an image, without having to apply too much color or additional layers.  I then cut the image out with my Spellbinder Oval  and matted it on kraft card stock, which was cut out using Spellbinders Scalloped Oval.
Did you know that these images come with cut files for your Silhouette?
If you didn't...Now you know and it is SUPER easy too!!  The images are already designed to fit these stamps PERFECTLY.  Just a little bit of trim, which is how I like it.
I love use a lot of kraft and white card stock, so I just load up my machine with these to card stock and cut.
I store them with my stamps, so when I get ready to do a project, I have these already cut and ready to be used.   I also cut the background lattice with my Silhouette, since I already had it out. :)  I also added some pearl dots, after the image finished drying. 
Here is a close up of the colored image and the sentiment that comes in the set. 
This is a perfect example of the cut file and how well it lines up with the stamp.
