ID: MC Nov/15 - Encaustic Poinsettia - Green Foil - Xmas Is a Piece of Home
size: 7"w x 5"h 

Created: November 12, 2015

I made quite a few encaustic painting recently so you'll be seeing quite a few of them soon... This one has some of my own calligraphy and metallic green heat transfer foil.

The rubber stamp quote on the inside is by Quietfire Design  

("Christmas is a Piece of Home..."); 


Side folded my white card then added a piece of green Bazzill monochromatic cardstock on top

Created the Blackletter sentiment, scanned it and then printed using my laser printer, then ran through my hot laminating machine with Papilio green metallic transfer foil. (Love the results...) Embossed around the edges (Embossolicious "Ornate Corner"). Adhered to front.

Created the encaustic painting using Enkaustikos, my electric frying pan and thin Rice paper. Used a wet paintbrush around the area and then tore the paper along the wetness. Gives a nice feathered edge. Adhered to front. Added Stickles yellow glitter Dots in the center.

On the inside: Stamped the poinsettia (Penny Black) using Distress minis.

Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
