ICAD 2014

I had so much fun doing ICAD last year that I am doing it again this year. It is a simple challenge hosted by Tammy at Daisy Yellow. Anyone can join in and the rules are simple: use an index card to make art every day in June and July. Tammy does give prompts but you don't have to use them, lots of people don't. I like the prompts because they make me think of things that I wouldn't normally. 
 The prompt here was PRISM. That is definitely one of the things I wouldn't think of but it was fun to do after I found a quote. Distress stain background, collaged paper, white pen & pencil.

 The next quote was CIRCUS TENT. I wanted to use the overall theme for this first week which is TEXT so I found a long quote that I could use for stripes. It took a lot of pencil and erasing to figure out how to make it fit but I liked the way it turned out. Pencil and pen.

The prompt was HELLO MY NAME IS.  It made me think of those name tags that have that printed on top. Distress stain and markers. 

I will continue with the overall theme for the week of Text and do cards inspired by the prompts.

I am continuing with the 52 card challenge as well and will have more cards to share soon. I have a new computer now so I am going to start adding videos to the blog after I figure out how to, lol.
