Onions three ways

The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge was to use one stamp in multiple way. I've used this one three ways -- to make my own background paper, as the central image, and paper pieced. For the background, I stamped multiple images on the diagonal in a Colorbox Chalk ink called Amber Clay. I then stamped the image in Memento black on white card stock  and on orange vellum.  I fussy cut the onions from the vellum (which reminded me of the color of onion skin) and paperpieced the main image.
Yay me, I also found a way to use vellum and mulberry paper on the same card. (Let's bring back vellum and mulberry paper everyone!)
The image of Vidalia onion seeds is from a set by TPC Studio.
