Using my trusty wax iron and blue wax, I made this background. It looked like a seascape to me so I added some fish and a turtle (Posh Impressions stamps from Stamp A Mania) and some glitter glue bubbles (Stickles by Ranger). I had a corner punch that loosely resembled a scallop shell so I punched out the four corners and mounted the panel on a hot pink card. It makes a nice summer card.

Tried encaustic waxes for the first time today. This craft is fun and easy and even the crappy pieces look good. You apply the waxes to the bottom of the encaustic iron (looks like a travelling clothes iron) and then glide the iron over specialty cardstock. I did ten cards in a hour's time.
