In a mingle of one of my groups we had "Collage" as a theme... Although I have many Collage stamps, for me collage refers to ATC... Funny but I realized that I have never used an image when card making.  So, I chanllenged myself to realize not 1 but 3 different cards with the same image.

I tried the Water Color Distress (February/March 2007) thechnique from Technique Junkie.  I used the Distress Ink pads from Rangers.
