I love buttons and I have a million of them - love seeing them at yard sales. You can never have enough. A picture inspired this next index card. The cards are done everyday, just not getting put on the blog everyday.
I love making cards. It's a small project, doesn't take up a lot of time, you get to give them away - and people love them. A few years ago, my mother got some of the cards that I made her matted and framed in one big picture. I was touched that she did that.
When you give a card, the card is a gift as well.
I love words. Words are powerful. Words are life changing. Be Brave Always. Live the life you've imagined.
This card was made by using book pages and paints as a back ground. The circles and words are among my favorite stamps by Tim Holtz.
I painted the little letters and the brown letters are made out of felt.
I used crackle paint with some stencils. I can never get it to crackle - gotta keep working on that.
Index card #3 was made on January 1st. I used a stencil, dylusions spray, distress ink - love the salty ocean blue.
I had an idea for index card #4, but it didn't work. It got worse as I went along and I don't like it all. The only thing that I like about it is that it is my favorite childhood book, but it is what it is and I accept it even if I don't like it...lol
I made this one on December 31, just getting time to post it now.
It's a she art girl, excited about 2013.
I bought Christy Tomlinson's she art girl online course for 1/2 price on black friday - well worth it! so much info and inspiration. I only have week one done and have learned so much. Thanks Christy!!!
Love the wooden birds from studio calico.
So, here is index card #1! I used a crumpled up book page, mod podge and brayer to make it stick to the index card. I love the texture it gives. I had no idea what I was going to do, I sat in my craft room, looking at all the goodies until I decided what I wanted to use.
Since it was Christmas, I decided on the color red.
Here are some of the products that I used. I haven't been using the stazon ink in ages, but lately I use it on just about every project.
I had a crafters workshop stencil that I wanted to try, so my card took shape.
Over the Christmas holiday, I've had some time to browse some blogs and I came across this challenge called "index card a day". The challenge is long over, but I'm going to challenge myself to do it. You can check it out here. Daisy yellow is an inspiring artist!
I bought a pack of index cards yesterday. So it begins....
