ICAD For The Start of July

Let's get up to speed with ICAD today. This card is half old gardening book and half newer seed catalog. I'm sure you can tell which is which. The flourish is a rubber stamp.

I used the prompt "telephone" for this one. Kinda lame interpretation, I guess, save for the fact these are old phones. The candlestick phone is a rubber stamp; the rest are scrapbook paper.

And here we are at the first of July (can't believe that!). The girl and the text were cut from a 1950s magazine. The little floral piece behind her is scrapbook paper, and the rest was done with markers.

Just a quick, random collage here made from an older magazine and marker.

The next two I followed the prompts. This one, obviously, is I Love Lucy. I had the heart and TV stickers. The bigger TV is a scrapbook paper image. The Lucy and Desi faces in the background were drawn with marker.

This prompt was flag/Independence Day. I did both. Stickers, postage stamp, scrapbook paper, ink... You get the idea.

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by!
