Index card art

Hello Crafty Friends!

Happy Monday!

I hope you all are having a wonderful December! 
Here in Ohio we have been blessed with wonderful and unseasonable weather! 
(50's and 60's rather than the usual teens or lower!!)

Today I want to share 2 altered index cards with you.
I seem to be feeling the itch for them again... I love the size and how fun they are to flip through when you have several together.  This time I am not trying to convince myself that I will finish 1 a day (#ICAD). Rather, I am just following whatever my crafty muse tells me to do!

I am also on a kick for faux postage of late, so maybe I will share some of that in a later post.

Anyhow, lets get on with showing you these mini works of art.

This one was fun to be able to match with my washi tape that had the quote on it!
(Background was created with Distress Oxide ink and a layering stencil)

This one is of course this one is total love for me! 

I had this piece of scrap paper cut to index card size already.  A while back I had used it to test my crackle medium, but never went any farther with it. 
I saw it the other day and I instantly knew what was missing... So along came my Grandville character and the postal marks (along with some ink distressing) and it was instant love!

Have you made any altered index cards or participated in #ICAD ?

  1. Tera! These cards are both SO great! The little guy is perfect for that sentiment. I love the simple instructional words. They just leave no doubt that it can be done. A great background for your design. The second card is fantastic. Your placement for images is always a perfect choice. The many techniques in this card really bring it to life. I’ve never done a daily challenge. Each step of the artistic process is a time consuming choice for me. Maybe someday in the future when every day becomes a play day. What a dream, eh? LOL


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!!
