ICAD Week 6

I am continuing my journey taking part in the ICAD (index Card a Day) challenge. Creating mini pieces of Art each day.
Card #36

For this card I started randomly doodling arrows and I had almost finished the card when I thought it would be good to have some words as well.  I have always been a fan of Rumours by Fleetwood Mac and Go Your Own Way is one of my favourite tracks. It also seemed appropriate for the card! This one was done with Prismacolour pencils.

Card #37

I had arrows in my head (don't know why) so I ended up doing another arrow card, and another song. This time The only way is up - I remember the version by Yazz in the 90's. The colours turned out a bit more psychedelic than I had planned but I like it. I was practicing shading with acrylic paint.

Card #38 - Tangerine Dream

This was done with a bright orange fineliner pen. For some reason my scanner refused to make this orange and kept scanning it as red. I even tried to Photoshop it, but could not get the right colour.

Card #39

I had no plan when I started, I just got out some acrylic paints, a sharpie marker and a sakura gelly roll white pen. I an trying to do something a bit brighter. I tend to go for more muted colours, but I am seeing so many fantastic cards from others in the group that are bright and look great. My favourite part of this is the little Birdie Feet.
Card #40
I have seen lots of card where people have collaged and they look fabulous. So I thought I would give it a go. Oh dear this is so much harder than it looks. I found trying to pull it all together was hard. My colours don't really go, but Hey I gave it a try and next time I hope it will be easier.
Card #41
 This card was lots of fun. I started by drizzling glue on a plain white card. I then left it to dry overnight as it has to be completely dry. I tried it once before it was completely dry and ended up with a big mess!  The final part was to wash watercolour over the top and use a damp paper towel to remove the paint from the glue which resists.
Card #42
Final card of the week and I was lacking inspiration. I had seen that quote and wanted to do waves. I must admit that I do not like the finished article. I knew what I wanted to achieve and it wasn't quite right, however this is all about experimenting and giving things a go so I posted it anyway.
Looking forward to next week.

  1. I love your cards!! Love. All of them. The penwork on Tangerine dream is particularly captivating however. :) I have been meaning to do some arrows on my index cards, you have inspired me to get cracking (especially since there is not much time left.
