The Watercolors Came to Play!

We just completed week four in the Index Card a Day challenge.
You can start any time!

ICAD # 22: School

This is the school in the Enchanted Forest.
The teacher is a cat like looking woman.
ABCs are important, but she also teaches about frogs, lady bugs and monkeys.
Every break comes with cake and ice cream.

Neocolor background, the school is from an excess sheet,
 collage, stamping, markers.

ICAD # 23 for June 23, 2014: Hearts. 
This card could be for the repeating patterns or magenta or both.
 Background of torn book pages. 
The hearts are a stencil where I used modeling paste. 
Let everything dry and then rubbed with Golden Fluid Acrylic Quinacridone Magenta. 
Let that dry and rub with Golden Fluid Acrylic Iridescent Gold.

ICAD # 24 for June 24, 2014: Umbrella.
 A quick little watercolor for the prompt "umbrella".

My Lady

fluid acrylics.

ICAD # 26 for June 26, 2014
For the Love of Purple!
I enjoyed the little watercolor I did for Tammy's umbrella prompt so much
that I got out the water colors to see if I remembered how to do color drop flowers.
YeeHaw! What fun!
Watercolor, rubber stamping and a "real" stamp.

Study in Red
ICAD # 27 for June 27, 2014
A Study in Red
Ledger paper on a 4x6 index card.

The hearts were cut from another index card that had been painted with
various shades of red.

Four Weeks down in the Index Card a Day Challenge

Love your style Snap! Nice to see these all in one place as I do sometimes miss cards flying by on FB. I've been posting mine daily on my blog but I think I like the idea of a weekly post - for next year!

They're all lovely but ICAD #26 is my fave -- such a beautiful shade of purply mauve and of course that rainbow Love stamp! Gorgeous!

Each week I see your cards and think, DARN, I forgot again to purchase some so I could do this . . .
Writing it on my list RIGHT NOW!
Such a fun creative idea . . .

I LOVE this. What a fun project. I'm especially drawn to the purple watercolor.

I've been on a long art hiatus. Maybe doing something like this would get my hands back into it.
