Index Card a Day Challenge 2015

This year I participated in the Index Card a Day challenge during June and July for the 3rd year in a row. It was a lot of fun, as always.

This year I continued my surface and pattern design explorations and tried a new-to-me technique for the first time: gelatin printing!

I had fun embellishing the prints with paint markers and gelly rolls.

Not only did I print directly on some cards, I also cut up some gelatin prints and collaged them back together on index cards.

The most unexpected card was one where I tied knots with embroidery floss.

For the bulk of my cards I explored different ways of using paint markers and gelly rolls with lots of layering, mark making and varying texture.

  1. Lovely patterns! You’ve given me an idea for next year’s ICAD.
    I found having a personal focus (crayon) for this, my 3rd year, added fun & depth for me.
    Your cards are exquisite~
