ICAD The Next Installment

Yes, it's time for another ICAD update. Are we thrilled?? Up first is just some designs. The old dictionary text background received a light coat of gesso because it was competing too much with the green frames. And the green frames were cut from a scrapbook paper. The doodling was added with markers.

It's been quite awhile since I used one of the prompts. This was "color wheel." As you can see, mine are a little non-traditional. I cut out illustrations from an old machinists' book and colored them in with markers. The background is scrapbook paper, washi tape, and markers.

I decided to commemorate the first day of summer with a little scrapbook paper and markers.

And since I made the above card, I was a day late with the prompt "1970s." Oh well. I cut images from 70s greeting cards, wrapping paper, and a craft magazine. I added some doodads with markers, and believe it or not, I have a rubber stamp from the 70s. Picked it up at an estate sale a few years ago. That is what I have been using to stamp the days on these cards. Here I was able to use the years.

This card makes another day late (and another dollar short). The two cards above pushed this prompt to the next day too. Can you guess what it was? "Psychedelic." Right up my alley; this is probably my favorite card to date. That is a real postage stamp in the upper right corner. All the rest was drawn with markers.
Have a groovy day!


  1. Love the last one..Bright and happy...They are all pretty cool..

  2. I love the bright colors in the last one. Makes me want to get some markers and play along! Hugs!

  3. I haven't cut and glued anything! No tape or stamps yet. I envy those that can think outside prompt. I'm happy to have them and I use them ... The first two days were hard for more--- i didn't realize they existed( prompts) anyway-- love the psychedelic card.

  4. Great cards! I fell off the ICAD wagon last week; need to get back on it because it's such a fun experience.
