Seersucker exchange finished.

Hello my dear reader. I just finished another exchange I subscribed to. This one was very particular for me since it was the first time I did this effect... it's called " Seersucker technique" and it fun and easy to do. The seersucker effect is done by running you final design through your crimpler horizontally and vertically... for a change the one named Leaves I did the oblique way which creates a crooked illusion ... but it's just an illusion....!!!
LEAVES
The background of this card was done with Mica Magic re-inkers... I love working with these. I added bead to the side of the card to add a little something different!
Hidden words

Hidden Words was done with the Rainbow ink pad and brayered, stamped and inserted to punched card stock... Square brads complete the design.

We wish you....

This image was initially done as an experiment of inking with rainbow pad and brayer... it turned out pretty nice ... I added some Mica Magic to the surface of the design to pull out area that had no ink on since I stamped before inking... !

This whole Seersucker project was a lots of fun and I hope my partners will be pleased with their card. I have learned that it's not all image that can be used with this technique... and it's always fun to learn something new!
