showin some mojo love for my stampscapes!

oh how i love when i get time to do sketch challenges! this one is this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch from Julee:

i left off the top strip because it didn't add to my design but i want to make another one now - if only i had time.....i also did this one using Tuesday's color challenge over on SCS - sahara sand, groovy guava and white. so on to my card:

This one was SUCH fun to do. i used a new stampscapes stamp, new versamagic dew drop ink pads i just stocked on my website AND my new cuttlebug folders!!

the background piece is run through the cuttlebug and then i ran a versamagic dew drop over it in sage to highlight the embossing. these are chalk inks which i have never used so i don't kow what others are like but these are DEEEElish!! coverage is vary opaque and creamy and they blend SO WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (i will get them up for ordering this weekend i hope!!) i cut the 2 circles with George and the scallop with celebrations on my cricut. then i ran the white circle through the cuttlebug with one of the decorative circle embossing folders. this one was highlighted with versamagic pink grapefruit and the foam blending tool - perfect for highlighting embossing.

the stamp is autumn brook. i inked it with various colors of versamagic (dew drops are perfect for this sort of precision inking) and then stamped it on white cardstock. many people get very fancy with their coloring of stampscapes but this shows it can be simple too! i mounted it on sahara sand and embossed the edge with one of the new embossing borders. again i inked it with the foam blending tool. the piercing across the top was done with the tim holtz ruler so i get perfectly spaced dots.

i will definitely be playing with these versamagics more!!!
PS - remember our UTEE tutorial with the cracked glass? you have GOT to run over and see what catherine has done with it on her blog!!!!
