Tammy Garcia at Daisy Yellow has officially kicked off her Index Card a Day Challenge (aka ICAD) for the 4th year in a row. Basically, for the next 61 days, the challenge is to create SOMETHING on an index card (3×5 or 4×6). I cannot tell you how magical this challenge has been for me! This is my 2nd year participating & I look forward to not only creating, but looking at what everyone else creates in the dedicated FB & FlickR groups. Please visit her gorgeous & incredibly informative site to learn more about it!
Here is my first card for this year’s challenge:
(black tempera paint, neon Gelly roll markers, silver Uniball Signo pen on a 3×5 manila Index tabbed card)
Tammy so generously creates optional prompts & themes throughout June & July. Generally I don’t use the prompts & themes, I prefer to let my mind wander & think up something on my own. But when I saw the list of prompts, number 1, PRISM, jumped out at me & I immediately thought of Pink Floyd. So much fun to make! Cannot wait to make my next one!
My 9 year old daughter also got in on the ICAD action & made the following card:
She told me she really wants to participate again this year (she made a handful of cards last year), but, well, you can read her exact words:
“Momma, I am so busy right now, I will only do art on the weekends, but when school ends I might even do 2 a day!”
LOL! We’ll see! No pressure on her, however she wants to do it! 🙂
So…if you want to find out more about the challenge, go here! I HIGHLY recommend it!
