online learning adventure, day 2 part 2

I only made one card today, and it's one of the collage stamp lessons from Day 2.  I've been watching the videos each day and reading the material, I just can't put into practice everything I've learned at such a quick pace. Since I'll always have access to the materials, that's OK.  And since I really, really like today's card, I'm OK with being two days behind, too:

stamp sets - Postage Due, Petite Pairs; ink - River Rock, Versamark; card stock - River Rock, Brushed Gold, Window Sheet; punch - Postage Stamp; Big Shot with Beautiful Wings embosslit; Gold Stampin' Emboss powder, Stampin' Dimensionals, stamping sponge

I chose to make it in gold (really - the River Rock card stock is gold in real life even though my photo doesn't have quite the right lighting), thinking there was enough white space in the design to qualify for this week's color challenge at Less is More, but I'm not really sure it isn't a touch too detailed.

Nonetheless, I'm pretty pleased with the three completely different cards I've made from one collage-style stamp set.  I only convinced myself to buy it because I knew the Stretch Your Stamps classes would cover collage stamps (ok, and because I love the bicycle); I've never been comfortable with the style before.
