ICADs for July 3 through 9

For Day 33, I decided to create another musical entry. 

Day 34 honors the USA's independence.

On Day 35, I created a collage using a cake plate from a magazine and a pastry, found in a different magazine.  It took forever to align the two sides of the pastry and place it on the plate.

Day 36 provided me with a bit of humor as I created the three kings using punches and computer generated text I colored using watercolor crayons (thanks Cindy for the gift that keeps on giving).  These were placed over a painted background.

I wanted to use some washi tape, so for Day 37 I overlapped it on the card.  I paired it with stamped wording. 

On Day 38, I found this wonderful quote by Oscar Hammerstein and attached it to some vintage sheet music.

I seem to be stuck using the same colors in my backgrounds, so for Day 39 I decided to sew a piece of scrapbook paper that looked like a map to the card.  To that I added the butterfly sticker and the computer generated text I colored using pigment ink that matched the background.

I thought I would share my completed ICADs for June, created in mosaic form.  It's easier to share a month at a time, instead of waiting until the end and trying to play catch-up.

Once again, I appreciate your continued support of my ICADs because this is the only place you will find them.

Such fun cards this week. I loved the cake on the plate. I thought that image came from the same source. And the We 3 Kings made me laugh. Thanks for starting my week off with a chuckle. Putting the cards together looks like a quilt. Enjoy your day.

I love all of these but day 38 is probably my favourite. The mosaic format works really well and I love the variety.
Hugs Barbara

Not sure which is my favorite, the above the fray, down the street around the corner or the cake one. Using a twinkie (or twinkie like cake) was the perfect pick.Great ICADS. How do you think of those things? Happy Monday.

You have great imagination Elizabeth. Love the cake stand and pastries on top.

Wonderful mosaic Dr. E! I particularly like the fabric with the staple, so cool! It is so easy to get stuck on one thing isn't it? background color, technique, whatever!! x

You are creating such variety of ICADs! You may say you are using the same colours but when you see them like this it makes such a co-ordinated set! Hugs, Chrisx

It was good to see your collection for the month all together.

Elizabeth, these are fun. I love the collage (I typed coolage but I guess it's that, too!) with all of them!

Also, I keep forgetting to thank you for all your nice comments. Glad you liked Giverny. And the book on the Queen -- It sounds as though they do not pay well at the palace. The staff get a number of perks (meals and such) but if they are living there they have to pay a rent! It was intriguing and really interesting (though again, too much detail, I think!) but a little disillusioning at times. Still, I think she's just amazing.

These are all great. I love the humour of We Three Kings. The abstract washi is my favourite - there is something architectural about it.
