ICAD cards

hi from northern ny where it is cloudy, windy and 61 degrees

i've been gluing once again, seems like that is just about my creative limit these days. don't have much motivation for anything else. but i am trying to keep up with aimee's glue it tuesdays and have also taken on the ICAD (index card a day) over at daisy yellow. also, i working through some of the exercises from randel plowman's collage workshop book. so i am getting a lot of bang for my buck, lol. here are my cards for day 2, 3, 4.
day 2 - using shades of white

day 3 - using black and white

day 4 - adding color to black and white

linking them up here: glue it tuesday week 12

have a good day, mary


  1. GIT gives me a little incentive to glue on my ICAD cards! Like your shades of white {:-Deb

  2. The "shades of white" is a favorite. I like the idea of working within color schemes...fun : )

  3. Lovely cards. I tend to work in colors for a page, too. It narrows down the choices when going thru the paper piles! ;)

  4. Hi from Dallas where it's 91 degrees and 8 pm. Enjoyed your cards!

  5. what a great way to combine more than one challenge. Love the last one :):)

  6. Love the use of an old envelope! one of my favorite things to work with.

  7. I love being able to combine challenges and you've done it beautifully - love the Plowman inspired piece and - well, actually I like them all. Thanks for the visit and I'll be stopping by again to see how your ICAD days turn out. I scrolled back through your blog and love your gelli prints too!

    1. thank you terrie. i hope to get caught up with posting new cards tomorrow. this has been a good way to do some of those collage challenges. and i love, love making gelli prints. i have so many but i just can't help myself some days, and you can't make just one, so the pile keeps growing. i have dozens that i haven't posted. need to get those loaded up on flickr.
