For all those of you who enjoy scrapbooking etc....

I was looking at some of my paintings and a small light bulb illuminated in my head!  How would it be if I created tiny individual paintings in encaustic art which in turn could be used by scrapbooking enthusiasts or by folk who enjoyed making their own homemade greeting cards?  You know the ones you can pay a fortune for in the main shops these days.  Very pretty but imagine creating your own cards for that special person in your life..... hence the card topper was born!

Each topper is unique and original, and cannot be replicated.  I have mounted each picture on a white background matt card which in turn can be attached on to a greeting card or any other project. If the white surround is not required then this could be simply trimmed off.   A sticky cushion could be placed behind to create a 3D effect too!!

The approximate measurements are 2.5" x 2.5"

Take a look and see what you think?

This has been created using just blue pigmented wax.

What I am really trying to say is any colour could be used.  If interested just visit my Etsy store!
