Quick Card

My card today is for the Tanda Teaser this week which is a Quick Card in a Quarter. in other words make a card in 15 minutes!!!! Anyway I managed it, didn't think I would tho. When sorting out my stash after Christmas I came across my Encaustic Art box which I bought about three years ago and put away as I couldn't get on with it. Recently I saw the most amazing exhibition of Encaustic pictures at our local hospital and was completely blown away by them, so I thought I might give it another go. I will never reach the standard of those pictures but have thoroughly enjoyed playing with the wax again. Many bits have ended up in the bin and a few others kept to possibly use as backgrounds. This is one of the bits that I saved, I cut it into two inch squares and mounted onto siver mirri. I added a couple of similarly coloured flowers to the centre, corner peel offs and sentiment. Thank you for taking a look at my cards and I really appreciate all of the comments left. Beryl x
