icad 16-19

More ICAD happiness to share...

#16 - trying out Martha Lever's credit card flower technique that I learned from the 21 Secrets course - some of those mini-classes are excellent!

 #17 -  Summer of color challenge for the week was mint & chocolate (based on ice cream flavor) and I have mint growing in the yard so wanted to try Karen's idea of gluing down real leaves and see what happens.  The mat medium is holding well and the leaves are starting to change color....this project smelled so good!

#18 - playing with tissue paper collage and india ink.

#19 - experimenting with india ink and bold marks - don't like the red, but really like the green....

There are SO many creative people decorating index cards all over blogland - if you need ideas, host Tammy at Daisy Yellow provides a weekly list of 10 suggested themes, or just pull out your crayons, your markers or paint and let your fingers do the walkin'.

I'm also sharing this with Artists in Blogland.

We're off to go camping for a few days - I'll be sure to take cards and markers with me so I don't fall behind.  I'm not ignoring all your wonderful creativity - I'll catch up when I'm home.....

    Yummy all and so very different. Lots of stretching going on here. xox

  2. All my mint died over the winter. The winter that WASN'T! So I admire that yours is growing so proficiently and you are able to use it in your art.

    Of course, all your ICADs are so unique and well done. Very impressive.

  3. These are beautiful, Terrie!
    Lovely work. :]
    #18 ICAD is my favorite, love the technique of applying tissue paper.

    Wonderful ICADs!
    Stay inspired!

  5. So you're an outdoor person as well as an artist, love that combination, and love your mint page too, I added a flower using medium, and when it changes color I added alcohol inks to bring the color back and it worked beautifully!! Have fun camping, can't wait to see what you create in nature! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  6. These are gorgeous Terrie, what imagination and flair you have my lovely. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs x

  7. You are the busiest person I know, Terrie..... but I always thought it was brush mileage that counted, artistically speaking, and you are putting in the miles. No wonder your work is constantly raising the bar.

  8. the mint leaves are perfect and the other cards are great especially the top one... you are the queen of getting things done!!!! I need to you to head over here and crack the whip at me...xx

  9. I love the cards and the mint card is my fav:))) The bottom one is very intriguing. So great to see them all at once! Keep up the wonderful work and as always thank you thank you for your visits:))

    Hi Terrie
    I have just received a lovely postcard from you through Shannon Ganshorn's swap. I have posted it on my wee blog with a link to yours - maybe you'll get a couple of new visitors. I love what you're doing - I have never used CAD - it looks scary!! Enjoy your camping trip, and again, thankyou for your wild at heart postcard:)


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
