ICAD #41: Firenze
This rubber stamp might be the prettiest one I own! I stamped it with Staz On black ink and used my waterbrush with watercolor pencils to add some browns and blues to the scene. The quotation at the bottom ("Thou paradise of exiles, Italy!") comes from Percy Bysshe Shelley.
ICAD #42: Negative Space
I used my punches here for the first time during the ICAD challenge. There's not much index card left after I took my circle and star punches to it! The background was colored with a mix of smeared alcohol inks.
ICAD #43: Positive Space
I took the punch-outs from yesterday's card, along with some punched swirls to create this card--kind of the opposite of yesterday's. This background was also colored with a mix of smeared alcohol inks.
ICAD #44: Blue Doodle
ICAD #45: Whip It
One of the songs on my Shuffle while I run is "Whip It" by Devo. (I highly recommend it, by the way; the beat is a perfect pace for jogging!) I thought up this card, as a matter of fact, while jogging! The swirl is a foam stamp, stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink. The boy is stamped in black pigment ink, and I drew in his little Devo hat with a pen. I added the song lyrics from "Whip It" in the spiral:
When a problem comes along, you must whip it.
Before the cream sets out too long, you must whip it.
When something's goin' wrong, you must whip it.
ICAD #46: Collage Page I
A recent project has been to create some collage pages; I'll blog about it soon so you can see what I did (and why I did it). For now, I used one of the collage pages I created for this card.
ICAD #47: Collage Page II
Here is another card created from a collage page, like the one above.
ICAD #48: Our Family
In the Uncommon Goods catalog, I saw a product called Custom Family Glassware. Artists Mary and Shelly Klein (a mother/daughter team) create illustrations of your family on drinking glasses. I used the examples in the catalog to create a picture of my own family!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
