ICAD 2018 - 50-56/61

Tomorrow it will be August and I am done with this challenge, hooray!  I will post the last of it tomorrow as I play catch up with my posting.

50/61 - Radio
Zig Brush markers and Micron

51/61 - Mint
What's your favorite?  Peppermint or Wintergreen?
Posca Pens, Stabilo Markers, and Prismacolor pencils.

52/61- Postage
All recycled materials.  Stamp, inside of security envelope as background, portion of address label (smaller butterfly), flowers cut from the envelope flap of a recent thank you note, and grass cut from an audition card.

53/61 - Cassette Tape
Despite what HWNSNBP thought it said (he has seen the light) it's supposed to say MUSIC.

Derwent Inktense pencils, Micron

54/61 - Tide Pool
I really had fun with this one and only regret that it's on an index card which won't take that much water, but I loved a picture of an anemone that I found while googling tide pool and just had to give it a try.

Derwent Inktense pencils, gel pen

55/61 - Network or in this case Net Work
My initial idea was to try a schematic of a sharks brain as it was shark week, but in looking for an example, I kept coming up with a meme that compared what a shark's brain looked like to the internal female anatomy and decided not to go that way.  Since I was a couple days behind at this point, I thought this would be the easy route.  Needless to say, I have a newfound appreciated for macrame illustrators.  

Posca Pens, Stabilo markers

56/61 - Typewriter
I love to type, but I really didn't want to pay homage to a typewriter as typing is a big part of my job.  The quote is mine.  Years ago I made a necklace with keyboard keys for a fellow employee.

Stabilo Pens

I'll have my last 5 cards and a round up for you very soon.


  1. Wonderful ICADs, good for you on completing.

  2. So impressed with the Net work - that was some job getting all the intertwining. I remember trying to pipe Celtic knots in icing to decorate my brother's wedding cake, and how hard it was to get them all intercrossing properly. The mints look good enough to eat, and the anemone is beautiful. I've only ever seen the deep purple/red ones. The last one made me laugh.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
