Abstract encaustic card

scribbleSml

Well you would never guess what this started off as….I was trying to do some hot air encaustic cards which I had hoped to would like flowers.  I think I managed every mistake possible: too much clear wax, held the heat gun too close and not only did I blow most of the wax off the card but I also managed to make a big bubble on one side.  Not to worry I added more colours then just scribbled with the stylus tool and threw some wax to make runs of dots with it too.  I cropped the bubble away then used my scribbled abstract for a colourful card.

Card:  white, black, encaustic card
Wax:  various colours, wax sealer
Other:  matching fibres

  1. this appeals to me…especially as Ive been doing a course on creating abstract art. It certainly turned out to be a happy accident!

    Maybe not what you intended but a happy accident – looks fab with the contrast of the black on the bright colours!

    I was about to say ‘what a happy accident!’ but I’ve been beaten to it – twice 🙂
