You might recognize the above from the movie Dead Poets Society, which is one of my favorite movies, and the inspiration for this contest.
Your challenge is this: To make a card with a stamp and/or stamps and use them in a way which they were not intended or designed. Hopefully this isn't too confusing, but I sure thought it would be fun!
Here are a few samples to help spark your creativity:
