Nearing The End

We are nearing the end.
This is the last full week of the Index Card A Day challenge.
Here are the cards for the last seven days.

ICAD #50 for July 20, 2014: Summertime. 
It's summertime - hot and humid. 
I thought Mr. Sun should get his credit! 
Acrylics, brush markers.

ICAD # 51 for July 21, 2014: Giraffe.
 This is the other card involved in the "smooshing" of paint. 
The elephant was first and now a baby giraffe. 
The giraffe also has a feathered friend. 
Smooshed acrylics, brush markers, rubber stamp, micron pen. 
His legs are kind of wonky and I don't think I've seen a giraffe with that long a tail, but that's okay -- he makes me smile!

ICAD #52 for July 22, 2014: Tranquility. 
4x6 index card with lots of torn papers. 
The pink and neon green you see peaking through are pieces of tissue paper. 
Acrylic paint. 
I knew the butterfly was going on this card but didn't know what else when I looked over and saw the fortune.
 I love it when a plan comes together and I didn't know I had one!

Fat Cat
ICAD #53 for July 23, 2014: Fat Cat. 
I have no idea where he came from. 
I had something completely different planned and all of a sudden there he was. 
I did a lot of cats last year and not so many this year. 
Perhaps that's why he wanted his say! 
4x6 index card with lots of torn papers, acrylics, rubber stamps, distress inks, brush markers. Meow!!!

Some Choices Are Hard
ICAD #54 for July 24, 2014: Some Choices Are Hard: Collage. 
Tissue paper, napkin, wrapping paper, paint "catchers", magazine image and clip art.
 I found the lady in bits and bobs first and then the shoes. 
I thought they were the perfect match for a little fun.

ICAD #55 for July 25, 2014: Doodle. 
Every now and then sends out an email with a tutorial. 
The last one was on watercolor backgrounds and doodling. 
She used twinkling H2Os. Not me. 
I used my plain old cake watercolors and was very pleased with the effect.
I forget how much fun I have doodling.
Calming. I could doodle all day.
 Silver sharpie and micron pen.

Flowers In The Sky
ICAD # 56 for July 26, 2014: The Stars are Flowers in the Sky. 
Watercolor,silver Sharpie, micron pen, doodles.

That's it for this week.
Just a few days left for the ICAD Challenge.

You definitely SHOULD doodle all day, Snap! These are so creative. I use my photos on postcards, but they take nowhere the time these do. Is it humid there? Cool here.

This looks like so much fun. Every now and then I just want to stop all my other projects and simply do something like this.( just maybe I will too ) I love your cheerful art work Snap.
