The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Friendship
We've got a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Friendship, with an option of Ribbon.
I've got to confess, I enjoy ironing. I don't have a permanent 'ironing basket' because it all gets ironed reasonably promptly, and there's never anything left in the bottom that I'm putting off doing. (Am I normal?)
I also love using my craft iron to make encaustic wax scenes like this one. A couple of swipes of wax onto the iron, and swoosh across some glossy card, and you have a unique vista every time. I added a diecut flower which I'd waxed on the iron, then I drew borders with Neocolour II crayons which I diluted with water. I stencilled some dots on the right-hand side, and I was surprised that the colour took on the wax, I thought it would just wipe off. The sentiment is from Dee's Blooming Buds set.
Pop on over to the blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and play along with us.
I'm entering my card into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes.
