Faced with a clean desk and an absence of red & purple, I sat down to make Saturday's index card and had zero ideas.
There was some random smearing of paint and half-hearted stamping of circles, but then the littlest circles started looking like bubbles, and I went scurrying off for suitable imagery. Mandy is right, everything does look better with a fish on it.
This one started out as the card where I 'd removed the extra paint from my circle stamps the day before. I pulled out some markers and colored in all the little intersecting spaces. It pleases me more than I thought it would.
A corollary to the above fish theory involves birds...
Thank goodness for a well-stocked scrap basket. I got home late last night from an evening of art, wine and conversation and nearly forgot to make my card.
A pre-painted background and some pleasing scraps had me done and in bed within 5 minutes.
It's been really hot and sticky in the art room, and if not for ICAD I probably wouldn't be in there at all. As always, I am eternally grateful to Tammy for leading this challenge every summer and fueling my creativity in all kinds of weather.
