Index Card A Day (ICAD): Days 55-end


It's Saturday, which means it's time for my final altered Index Cards. Another year completed and a wrap-up mosaic, too.

Day 55: Evidence. Used postage stamp, found words, backer cardstock, sheet music, German text, die cut circles, image from my stash. 

Day 56: Searching for the truth.  Watercolor background, external sticker sheet, postage stamps, found words.

Day 57: Take a closer look.  Napkin, magazine image, postage stamp, found words, security envelope.  This may be my favorite of all the ICADs I made.

Day 58: Not a black and white world.  Security envelope, computer generated text, sewing, black cardstock, drawn image using a Sharpie.

Day 59: The Art Prodigy.  Watercolor background, image from my stash, computer generated title, die cut circle, washi tape.

Day 60: She used what she had.  Watercolor background, outline of die cut, sheet music flower outlined in blue felt pen, foreign text, tissue paper hand and ink pen, image from my stash, hand written words, green painted paper.

Day 61: Heartfelt.  Background stamps, green paper cut into heart shape, sheet music, postage stamp.

Day 62 (extra ICAD): ICADs for challenge. Sentiment reads:
In 2021 Bleubeard and Elizabeth created 63 ICADs.  61 for Daisy Yellow's challenge and two for Squiggles.  
Also created for July 31.  Watercolor background, ransom type letters, computer generated text.

Now for the mosaic of all most of the ICADs I created in July, 2021.  I'm not sure how, but somehow, when I was creating the mosaic, I ended up with 64 ICADs.

I had a choice when I tried to enlarge this mosaic. 
It was either this, which is Extra Large (you don't have a microscope small enough for Medium)

or this which is "Original."

This is the ICAD that was apparently extra.

Day 63: (ICAD created for Squiggles).  Background using water soluble crayons.  Computer generated text, which reads:
Elizabeth loves Bleubeard
Bleubeard loves Elizabeth
Elizabeth loves Squiggles
Bleubeard loves Elizabeth
I think that says it all.
These are all the ICADs I created in June.  Once these go live, you will also be able to find them on my Previous Collaborations page.
I also want to thank Tammy at Daisy Yellow for hosting this challenge again this year.  11 years for Tammy, nine for me.
I hope you found a few of these ICADs you liked in 2021.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I am truly grateful to you, my dear friends, followers, readers, and lurkers for checking out Bleubeard's and my ICADs.  Please remember this is the only place you have seen or will see them because I'm not on the other social media sites where ICADs are shown.

#1 What a scary book you have there?! Praying, coffins (plural) and birth on such a little piece?!
#2... great one.
#3... very cool
#4 ... glad it´s not!
#5... I can feel it.

I like the mosaic, too.
And the lover´s one, ohhh.... June sure was some month!

I like this last batch Elizabeth. I like the book words you added and you are so very good at picking out titles. Fun collection this year. It is hard to believe that with today, July is already over. Hope it was a good month, and I'll wait until next year to see your ICADS. hugs-Erika

Congrats on finishing the ICAD challenge. The Art Prodigy is my favorite in this batch. The extra ICAD made me chuckle. I'm sure Squiggles loves Elizabeth, too.

My favorite is the black and white one. So true, and perfectly imagined.

Wow congratulations! I absolutely love #59 Well done my friend for completing the challenge.

I think this is my favourite batch this year! I still can’t get over the number of different security envelopes you receive. I get so few things in the mail these days my selection is really blah! Black and white world is really great. Also Evidence. And your bonus card at the end was so cute and I’m sure very true! Also wanted to mention I love your two latest countryside pages. The wildflowers and the deer are both just lovely.

I loved the ICAD display. I have to say, the ones with the stamps especially catch my eye. I just love how they are incorporated into the designs.

Your Icads are really gorgeous Elizabeth !! I loooove them. Your creativity has NO limit.💓
I hope you are fine with Bleubeard and Squiggles.
Have a lovely weekend, and I send you Big hugs. Caty

Congratulations on completing the challenge once again Elizabeth. I love them all, they're great little compositions with fabulous titles.
I must try and get a photo of all of mine, good idea to split them into June's and July's Icads.
Hope you're having a great weekend.
P.S. I'm guessing Squiggles is a cat with cattitude!

Lovely assortment of ICADs to finish the challenge, dear Elizabeth.

And I'm with you: clowns are terrifying! (I cringed when I saw that was the theme at SPA this week.)

Well done on completing the ICAD challenge- with so many clever collages!!! The mosaic of them looks really cool- I have no clue how that's done. I think in this last batch my favorite is "She used what she had".
