Michael Strong mosaic frame ATCs

I think that I have mentioned before that the first Michael Strong stamp that ever said "buy me!" to me was the cloisonne mosaic frame, but I'm guilty of not using it as much as I should.  When Trix said to me that we should swap ATCs using Michael Strong stamps, the mosaic frame leapt into my hand - it is versatile for all sizes, being blocked into 1/2 inch increments.  Here are the ATCs I made:

The paper is some that I gelli-printed about a month ago.  I heat-embossed the stamp, then cut out the parts that I wanted.  On the green paper, I got a clean impression with the stamp.  On the dark blue, the stamp slid a little, but the distressed effect is pretty cool in its own way.  I couldn't resist cutting out the flowers in the design for the last one, and the gold circles in the middle of the flowers are actually jump rings from my jewelry findings.  I just realized I have the sea, the air, and the land depicted here!
