Default WT866 - A Different Perspective (10/14/21)

Hello everyone...Cathy here with this week's Ways to Use It Challenge.

Sometimes it helps to look at things from a different perspective. I'm sure we all have quite a bit of money invested in our hobby...especially in stamps. So today we are going to get our money's worth by looking at one of our stamps and using it in a way other than the way it was intended. This makes the stamp more versatile. For example...a heart stamp can be used to make a flower or a butterfly...a circle stamp can be used to make a Christmas ornament. I chose to color a flower with traditional Christmas colors making a Christmas card. Let's get our creative juices flowing...take a look at one of your stamps and find a way to use it in a different way.

Check out the thumbnails below for some creative inspiration from our team...a big thank you to Lisa and Sabrina for stretching their stamps by taking a different perspective!

Here's a link to the Gallery at Splitcoaststampers.

I am hoping this qualifies for todays challenge of using things differently. It is actually a case of RDM's Chalkboard Look card: Chalkboard Look by rdm at Splitcoaststampers
I have never seen this technique so thought I would try it and it turned out so pretty!! Thank you RDM for the inspiration!!
Here is my card:
