Encaustic Fairies

Theres a new challenge this fortnight over on The Spotlight Challenge and we're looking at Artist Trading Cards or ATC's for short.
For this I went a bit mad and made 14 of them lol!  They're in 2 series, one using the larger set of 3 fairies from The Stampmans Aspects of Desgn 59 Starburst Fairies stamp set and the other series uses the smaller 3 fairies from the set. 
The backgrounds are done with Encaustic wax using the iron and stylus tool on some.

Here's a couple of the set..

Number 8

Number 10

These are AVAILABLE TO TRADE, leave me a message or email me to arrange a swap, they are numbered below the card.

WOW!!!! These are magnificent! And there are so many of them! I have often admired this art form but have always felt that I already have too much stash (silly me - it's actually not possible to have too much stash is it!) and I didn't want to get hooked on a new media. Having seen how pretty these ATCs look with those fairies though - I'm having second thoughts! They are marvelous Vix! Hugs, Lesley
