But I had a few challenges I really wanted to get to before the deadlines. I used Encaustic Wax on both of them - I bought all the supplies for this (wax, small iron, glossy cardstock) a few years ago at Encausticart after seeing Birgit on Splitcoast using it on her cards - and I've only worked with it twice. On my cards today - I just melted the waxes on the iron and then ran the iron over the glossy card stock, holding it and lifting it different ways to get different patterns. There's a ton more you can do with this art but I haven't had time to play with it and figure out how to make actual scenes. There are lots of You tube videos out there on this art - here's a good introductory one.
So for my first card I used green and brown wax and cut out a circle from the card - my design thought was to make it look like a world globe to go along with my sentiment.
Cas(e) this Sketch and for my theme I used the Merry Monday Challenge - Carol Inspired theme.
I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Enthralled with fall As I think the colors match the leaf colors and the burlap is like the edge of the bowl.
