Icad week #2

I did it! Second week completed! While I am finding I'm not keeping up daily, I am keeping up weekly. The size and prompts allow for the creation of these to simply manifest. So, without further ado.

This is Prompt #14. Magenta. I used my new watercolors for the background. I then cut out some magazine images and began gluing. This was easy and fast. 

Prompt #13. Book Review. Watercolors again. I drew the book first though. Then wrote in my review. Finished with watercolors.

Prompt #12. 
I suck at drawing these. I tried and tried, to no avail. so I cut them out and glued them to the card. I then added gesso and took a heat gun to it. Doing so added some awesome texture to this. I ink sprayed with brown and green and added some text. This was my favorite as far as technique, so far.

Prompt #11
Toy Camera
I was at a total loss for this prompt. Had no idea how to interpret. Then, boom. Stamped the background and added a Lion charm which reminds me of my daughter's favorite toy. Text was added last. Easy. 

Prompt #10
The Beatles.
I drew my girl first. Used color pencils on her. Then added some magazine pages. Finished with some text. I need to practice my faces way more. I have 40 or so more cards to do so. Haha! 

Prompt 9
I began by gluing down some scrapbook paper. Then added the book page, which I misted with ink sprays. I colored in the background with green Prisma Art Stix. Added the text and voila. Done. 

Prompt #8
I used magazine paper, and found this great image of Buddah surrounded by a mandala, which I layered. Used a white gel pen to outline and continue the mandala. Filled in the mala beads. 

I'm loving this. I can't get enough of these little index cards. I think this might me thing now. 



  1. This week I vow to overcome my fear of drawing people and faces on my cards. Seriously, I've been wanting so much to do this but have shut myself down every day. Not anymore. Although... maybe I'll use tracing paper? (See what I mean? Totally nervous about messing up even though I can paint over it!)

    You use such a rich palette and I enjoy the depth of your cards. The paisley card, for example, is so much more than just run-of-the-mill "paisley" if you know what I mean. Words DO have such power... and I love your ink sprays. :-) Glad to have found you via the link up. I'm #35 there!

  2. Great to see all your week 2 ICADs in one place! I know I have seen some but not all on the FB page - there are simply too many to keep up with some days. My favourite is "grateful" - it was funny the day I saw that posted as that was a word I had been toying with using on that very day. For some reason I went in another direction, but it made me smile to think someone else was on the same wavelength. i look forward to seeing more of your cards as we carry on with this fun challenge!
