Mixed Media Encaustic Birthday Card

Birthday Card 2013 CH for 27 October 2013I posted the back of this card in a blog a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t want to post the front until after the birthday. Well, here are both sides. The receiver of the card came to dinner a while back and brought a fabulous bouquet of home-grown flowers picked freshly that day. They filled two vases and lasted 2 weeks. I took photos and they provided the images for the card.

Birthday Card BackIt’s a 5″ x 7″ canvas board. I’ve used regular and lemon shellac, modelling paste, collage, encaustic wax, acrylic paint, acrylic medium.

The epithet on the back reads:

“Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine and freedom and a little flower.”  (Hans Christian Andersen).

I’m going to do my own Christmas cards this year. It’s time I got down to it.  Anybody else doing their own Christmas cards?  I’d like to see them.

    This turned out really well. Those flowers must have been a knock-out! I’ve made all my Christmas cards in the past, then I did some of them and filled in with store-bought cards. Will probably not make them this year, too many other things going on. I should have started months ago! I look forward to seeing yours.


  2. Wow a beautiful card Ann and to have a card made for you is unique. Well done, you are clever.
