Convention Hoopla!

I am already in convention mode.  What Convention you say...why STAMPAWAY of course if you are a rubberstamper or paper crafter anywhere near the Ohio Valley you should attend. It is here in my home town of Cincinnati and it is one week away. So yesterday I made my convention trades. This year I decided to make ATCs since they are all the rage. I wanted a simple design since I was making them in mass.



I'm calling her Beauty. I got her last year at Stampaway from DP Artworks, they called her Clio, but to me she is just so beautiful. I stamped her in Brilliance Cosmic Comic on glossy black paper and embossed her with Judikins Clear embossing powder. I rounded the corners with my new Round It All, what I liked about it was that I could do multiple layers at one time. I made 30 of these so that was a nice thing.


I had a custom ATC back stamp made by READYStamps. I love their service and I love that it helps a charity. You get a 7 by 9 sheet of stamps for $36, so I had a few custom made for friends.

Last weekend I went to a scrapbook store's garage sale and one of the bargains I got was a Maya Road tin for $1...I'm not much into chipboard (yet) so getting the tin empty was alright with me. It occurred to me that it would be perfect to carry my trades in. But not no no.

This is the front:


And this is the back:


I applied Alcohol Inks in blues. Then I stamped it with Palette Hybrid ink in Noir Black and added the dots with my Ranger white gel pen.

Hyped up for Stampaway!

OK, I am jealous. Another convention? I didn't think people made trades any more for conventions. You are right, that image is great stamped in copper. I like your Queen stamp on the back of the atc.
