ICAD17: Week Three..

Hey,

Happy Monday.

I am actually on my way to Rochester, NY for a 4 day workshop with my clients.

I get to see my colleagues from London and finally meet a client I really like face to face. So despite being away for 4 days for work, it's gonna be good times all round.

ICAD is currently in week 4 and because I am away this week and I didn't want to miss anything I spent a crazy 2 evenings making all my cards - fun, but mental.

I loved week 3, it seems like all of my cards involved some sort of stamping, I guess that shows where my head was at.

I really liked Alphabetise, but I decided to go with Day 19 - Gear or Gadget as my fave this week.


This is my fave mainly because I can't believe I got the resist to work on the index card, seriously index cards are the bomb!! They take paint, ink, water, heat embossing and pretty much anything else you can think of and they don't fall apart or smudge. Amazing.

Anyway, I stamped the cogs / gears using white picket fence Distress Paint and dried it, this creates a resist for you to blend over. My blending doesn't look so hot here, but in my defense this is actually the one flaw of an index card, it's so thin that it moves a bit when you are blending!

I added the strip of Robots and Gears, it's actually a punch that I have had for ages.

This whole ICAD thing is a lot of fun. I have had a hoot coming up with ideas and rooting through the depths of my stash for things that have been neglected.

Oh and I created a gallery, for you to nose at incase you want to see them all at a bigger size.

  1. Loving all the creativity! The sprout one made me giggle. I do love a good sprout, cooked so it's gone a bit soggy of course and the bunnies love the stalks they grow on. Enjoy your work jolly!

  2. Just had a browse through the gallery - so much awesomeness and I love the variety in styles. The gear punch on this one is so cool and the inked background looks damn fine to me. :D
