Backyard Basics Box Card

Hi all I finally finished my first card for the new year.  It took 6 days to finish because we had record temps here and my craft corner felt like I was sitting in a hot box.  Do not like heat waves!  Anyway it finally cooled down a little(only a little) so I got to finish it up.
I have had this set for a little while but was struggling to find a use for it so decided to just make another box card.  I embossed all the stamps then water coloured them then die cut them with the matching dies.  I just love it when Stampin' Up! make matching dies for their stamps it is so much easier than fussy cutting.
I put the Iris(well I think it's an Iris) on both sides of the box.  I used my Aqua Painter to colour the stamps without water in it, I just use it like a paint brush.  First colour the stamp using the lightest colour then make sure your brush is nearly dry then pick up a bit of the darker colour on the very tip of the brush and draw in fine strokes across the paper to get the blended look.
Then added a Tulip on the back.  Pretty happy with the way it turned out(I think).  For directions on how to make the actual box see my previous post Christmas Box Card
