Home from Convention

We had SOO much fun in Denver! What a blast to spend four days with a bunch of crazy stampers. I believe stampers are the best people in the world!

I will be uploading some pictures in the next few days of friends, fun and stamped samples, but tonight, before I collapse, I wanted to share the total highlight of the week with you all. The very last day of convention was the awards ceremony. I have been to loads of these and some of them leave a bit to be desired. This year however, it was wonderful! The entertainment was put on by Ryan Shupe and the Rubber Band. It was wonderful! I am putting a link here for you all to check them out. If you have a chance to see them, go! I purchased ALL their CDs and am anxiously awaiting when I can see them in concert again.

One of the things that made the band so awesome was the fact that they totally loved what they were doing. It was clear on every one of their faces and in everything they did. They were also am amazing bunch of musicians. wow. No words can describe them! Yes, I am gushing, but...my first love is music (after family of course) and these guys just had it!
This card is one of the swaps I did. The background is done by spritzing glossy paper with water, randomly splotching reinkers on the wet paper with a paint brush. When you get the colors all over the paper, take some Saran Wrap and lie it over the paper and scrunch it up. Let the sarah wrapped paper dry for a couple hours and then peel it off. I got this technique from Pat Huntoon. It always looks different and amazing. I really like it! The focal point is from the Garden silhouette set. I used the M3 on the stamp and then added a bit of clitter to the centers of the flowers.
Have a good weekend!
