I simply used one of the images in this set by Prickley Pear to use as a background using Versamark ink. I then used the same image and stamped it in aqua on a white strip. The white strip was then mounted on silver mirror cardstock. Next I punched two borders using a die from MFT and attached them in back. I die cut the cardinal and used an aqua embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
Now wouldn't you say that's stretching it for me? LOL!
Ciao for now.
