I had a ton of fun making these!! Big thanks to Hanna for organizing this swap - now the fun of waiting to see what's in the mail!
Here's how I made them....using Jodi Ohl's faux encaustic techniques....
I started with Arches 300lb cold pressed watercolour paper covered with 2 coats of Gesso.
I did a bit of collage with vintage book pages, atlas pages, music sheets etc. and then applied some glazing medium and some acrylic paint. Adding spatters and drips with acrylic paint - then some stencil work. More glazing medium with different colours of paint.
At this point I cut the watercolour paper into the individual cards. I applied a gel transfer photo and hand painted a flower on each card. I used rubber stamps and Staz On ink to apply the title and used a permanent marker to embellish the painted flower. I also added a scrap of gauze and then applied a couple of layers of pouring medium tinted with Titan Buff paint.
