Well, folks...here we go...the beginning of my posts showing what flows out of my head, heart, and hands for the annual Index-Card-a-Day challenge (hereafter known as ICAD).
I had the great fortune of discovering a stack of ancient tabbed index card dividers at my local creative reuse center. These babies are made from heavyweight stock, almost like cardboard (thicker than what you can find at Staples) so they hold up under a lot of abuse without severe warping or curling. Plus, they have this beautiful aged cream patina...love them! Anyway, that's what I'm using for ICAD this year.
This year, I've decided to work in small series of 6 to 10 cards at a time and as you can see here, I began with some abstracts. I printed the cards with my Gelli plate, added some stamping as I desired and then began layering on bits of paper scraps. Simple, bold, playful: These pieces of index art fit in exactly with my summer plans.
