ICAD 1-5

This year I’m participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day) again, it’s my second time. There’s a weekly theme with daily prompts. I share them on my Facebook blog the day I create them and I’ll write a weekly post with more info here. You can find the theme and prompts at DaisyYellow.

For my first card I painted old book pages from the Dutch book Dokter Vlimmen in yellow, orange and red. I tore strips from these pages and glued them on my card. The blue stripes in the background are made with a very old marker. I decorated my card with a sun stamp.
On this second card I made some found poetry from our local newspaper on a graffiti background. It’s in Dutch and grammatically correct, but doesn’t make sense.
On card three I glued a vintage lady and added a matching quote. The background is again made with a marker.
Of course I have to add some embroidery to my cards from time to time. This lavender is inspired by a Lavender & Lace fabric book page I made a few years ago. I stitched on a painted book page.
This morning I made card 5. Just a simple collage to say I like snail mail. I received the kawaii postman in a swap.

    1. Thanks, Queenie. I've got the postman in a swap from China, but it was part of an envelope from a museum in Singapore.
