Index Card Update! #ICAD2016. 366/177.
By the 28 June the 2016 Index Card a Day (ICAD) challenge will have run for 4 weeks.
I’ve been posting cards I have created each day on the closed Facebook groups for ICAD.
I use the prompts to challenge my ‘head’ for creative responses and the prepped cards give me further consideration on how to interpret the prompt. Not all of those who play along use the prompts but this is my preferred way. I guess I need some direction!
My favourite materials thus far:
- lined index cards 3X5 (inch) 4X6 (inch) – actually compulsory because without them, no challenge…
- gouache and watercolour paint
- unpin black pens – lettering and outlining – 0.8 mostly
- neocolour 11 – can be wet for effect
- water brush – see above
- stickers – not many used
- washi tape
- stamps & ink
- gelliroll pens
- found materials – paper, ribbon
My cards for the past few weeks here:
Do you join in for the Index Card A Day challenge?
It’s not too late to come on board. The Facebook group is closing to new members on 30 June. The challenge means you start when you can! It ends on 31 July but remains open for posting until sometime in August.
As I have written previously, it is all the brainchild of creator and artist, Tammy Garcia. Her website is found here!
Happy creating everyone.
