ICAD 2015 - Last Week

YES!  I'm finished.  All 61 cards done.  And only one day past the end of July.  So without further ado.........

Day 57 - Sunrise
I took my rolls of solid colored washi tape and tore them up into little pieces to make my sunrise.  

Day 58 - Queen of Hearts
I've had this stamp with the sentiment on it and think I've only used it once or twice.  I added the crown in gold gel pen and did go over the stamping with a Micron marker because it was originally done with a Zig brush marker and didn't come out all that well.  Then I tangled the rest of the card with a heart tangle adding the red with the Zig and pulling the color out from the points with my aquapainter.

Day 59 - Plaid
Done with Kuretake watercolors.  The hardest part of this one was waiting for the individual colors to dry enough to be able to lay down another line over them without pulling the color away from the intersections.  

Day 60 - Advice
I have actually made up some business-size cards with this winged pig and that sentiment.  This time I added some printed scrap paper for color.

Day 61 - Parachute
The parachute was drawn with a Micron marker and I added pencil shading for dimension.  The target (what you see of the X) was colored with a white Prismacolor pencil and then I used watercolors for the "grass".  

And the message goes along with my completion of this challenge - Just a Little Off Target But a Soft Landing Nonetheless.

I am glad that I chose to do this again this year but I am also glad that it is done for now.  I have a list of things to get moving on and caught up with and I will, little by little.  Don't get me wrong - these index cards do not (normally) take a long time to complete, it's just me being on a mission to get them completed in a reasonable amount of time and prioritizing.  

Thanks for bearing with me and thank you to those that left comments along the way.  It is always encouraging to hear what other people think about what I'm doing.
