Seahorse Encaustic Card

Two layers of encaustic work were used to create this card. The background card was spread with blue, purple and red wax and then a random pattern applied with screwed up paper whilst the wax was kept warm on a hot plate. The picture was created by covering the glossy card with blue wax and again whilst keeping the wax warm a silhouette stamp of two seahorses was applied so that it lifted some of the wax off to leave an imprint. The pattern around the seahorses was made in the same way, applying the back and tail part of the large seahorse on the stamp. The two were matted together on white card and all applied to a blue A5 size card. Suitable coloured fibres down the spine then completed the look.
