Feaux Seersucker Thanks

Oh my, we are having the worst weather here today, snow then rain, then snow again and my acreage looks like a big swimming pool. I wanted to sit down and stamp something that would make me feel like Spring even though our crappy weather is going on. I have been taking it easy after stamping as I am feeling worse today and it hurts so to cough. I called my boss and told him I was going to the doctor tomorrow.

On this card I used the technique called Feaux Seersucker. You stamp your image and then put it through you crimper then put it through again turning your CS a quarter turn only. I loved how it turned out! It takes me back a few years looking like a dress pattern I had once. Okay here is what I used to make it.

  3. Hi Bev, I think this card is so pretty. I now need the stamp set and need to give this technique a try. That's what happens when I go blog hopping.
    PS. I love the Easter card you made for the Hippity Hoppity swap. Thank you
