Beeswax Valentine - traded


I had enormous fun making this beeswax valentine. Got it together in the end, and I think it looks ok - the image is Crafty Individuals and the words Paper Artsy. The only thing that went wrong was the wax went right through the card, but since it doesn't show on the right side, no problems :-) If you look carefully, there is an impression of a heart on the right hand side - didn't go as deep into the wax as I would have liked, but it was stamped with red ink.

This ATC will soon be winging it's way across the big pond to Canada as a gift.

I love this, Ed! This is an amazing make! Too bad it has been traded. If you make something similar, I would trade with you if there is something of mine you would like.
Really neat it looks like something from ages past.

I adore using beeswax in my artwork and it looks as though you do too because this has such a warm and lovely feel to it. Great idea to carve the heart into the piece. I like that it is subtle. Just suits the feel of the piece.
