Encaustic anniversary card

dragonflies2Sml

 

I have been playing with my encaustic stuff again (after a long while) and made this card for Chris and Grace’s wedding anniversary using the indirect transfer technique with tissue paper.  I think this is my favourite technique so far but I do need a lot of practice still.  My great pal Lizzie joined me to play with the wax and I might just have got her a new hobby!
The trouble is that I don’t get my encaustic stuff out often enough so I have to go back to the basics each time and practice.

Waxes:  blues, browns and greens from the starter kit
Card:  encaustic card and an aperture card
Other:  acrylic sealer
