SDC97: 3 or More Trimmed Images

It's time for another Stampotique Designer's Challenge!  France is our host this week,
‘Don’t you just love all the details on Stampotique stamps? The best way to realize just how detailed they are is… by trimming them! And that’s our challenge this week: I’d like you to use (at least) 3 trimmed stamped images!  Up to you to use 3 times the same image or 3 different ones, to use them on a tag, a card, an altered object,… I hope you find this as relaxing as I do! P.S.: sometimes you need to cheat a bit to get all the details. You can for instance cut off some details when trimming and make them visible again by stamping directly on your piece and sticking the trimmed image on top of the stamped image.’
 Well, it must be Opposite Day!  I mis-read and created a project with 3 UN-trimmed images - doh! FAIL!!! :(  Sorry, France!  It's so funny too because I usually use trimmed images!!  I thought I would share my project anyway since it was so fun to make!  My little ATC has a Dylusions Ink sprayed background that has been over-stamped with Moonlight White Brilliance ink and Honey Distress Ink.
Stamps by Stampotique Originals:
Spidergrass, Wildflower Verse,
Honeycomb Background, Tiny Bee, Sun Design
