ICAD For The Middle of July

We're in the home stretch for ICAD 2015. Here are my latest cards.

The main image below is a tape transfer from a seed/plant catalog I thought was rather intriguing. The shell was cut from an old decoupage image sourcebook. The left side is scrapbook paper, and the remainder is markers.

This fun image is part of an old greeting card. I added some more flowers with markers; also markers were used for the lettering and postmark. I stamped the postmark's date.

Just a fun little collage. Scrapbook paper, old sheet music, washi tape, and some doodles with markers.

I don't know what possessed me to make a cooking collage as I usually get sick to death of cooking, but I liked these old magazine images. They are from the 50s and 70s, with the exception of the crock pot; that was from a new magazine. I colored in the border with markers.

Can you guess the prompt for this one, and from where I took my inspiration?  Well, the prompt was "Album Cover." See the two pictures below for what sparked my idea.



Thanks for catching up. Only a couple more weeks!  


  1. Oh, I love the knew I would! I'm going to sit down with my markers this afternoon and see which ones need to be tossed. Doesn't that sound exciting? come on over! Hugs, Diane

  2. Beautiful cards Diane...Very creative..Where do you get the ideas for them??

  3. I can't believe how close we are to the end already!
    These are great... I may dabble in mixed media next time.
    ...besides just drawing. ;)

  4. Great ICAD's Diane, I'm torn as to my favourite ... a dog theme is always top of my list but the Led Zepplin inspired ICAD is a contender too!

  5. the dog one is super cute! You are just so creative!

    1. Many thanks for the visit and nice comment!

  6. i love ALL of these! holy wow, you are sooooo totally onna roll this year. have to say that secretly, the zeppelin one is my favorite, b/c it's just SUCH a great take on the original, while still being totally YOURS. but seriously, i love every single one! :)

  7. Ohh, I like that food collage!!!!
