The next challenge in our group was to use one stamp but use it in three different cards and different ways. We were to use only one other stamp with it. My first was as a background, while highlighting the center one by coloring it. I embossed them all in silver embossing powder.
Darcie's - Garden Bird, embossed w/silver embossing powder, center one colored with marker
The second card I used the bird as my focal, now this card I did mess up the challenge because I used 3 stamps because the sentiment isn't part of the framing that is a separate stamp, didn't even think about it until I was taking the picture, oops.
Darcie's - Garden bird stamp set (frame, sentiment and bird)
Martha Stewart - Flower punch
Now this last card took a lot of thinking to figure out how I could use the bird differently, and I came up with a flower. Stamped the bird many times, I have left overs now for other cards :) And played with them for awhile and came up with cutting the birds beak, legs and tail off, and then putting a whole through it's eye to thread the brad through and that way they would all be the same length around.
Darcie's - Garden Bird (cut 6 times for flower)

David Tutera- Birthday sentiment sticker
