ICAD 2017 - Day 11 - Tetrahedron

Hi everyone!

I had to google what today's prompt, tetrahedron was, and OMG! It looked hard but when I started drawing it, it came together better than I thought. But then how to colour it so that it actually looked dimensional! That's where the iridescent paints came in handy, as they are translucent so you could see the other colours beneath them.

ICAD 2017 - Day 8 - Paint Chips

Hi everyone!

Another ICAD again today. This one was just mind boggling to me! Paint chips! I originally thought I might draw some chips (like McDonald's) and paint them, but thought better of that one and decided to just chip some paint on the card.

I decided to use crackle medium on this one to help the paint chips appear, but unfortunately I think I applied the crackle medium too thick because it hardly cracked at all. I made the paint chips by pricking the paint and tearing it off the card.

ICAD 2017 - Week 1 - Day 3 - Vintage

Hello again!

Yet another ICAD creation today! The prompt for this one was "vintage" so I naturally went to my old faithful KaiserCraft Lady Jude vintage lady stamp.

I also used Tim Holtz's distress stains and inks, what vintage piece would be without these?

Along with a page from an old book and a piece of Prima's Ledger paper, I was all set!

I started out creating grunge and vintage way back in the day but haven't done much of it lately so it took me a while to get into this one. Note to self: work on your "vintage" style!

Products used:

Tim Holtz vintage photo distress stain
Tim Holtz antique linen distress stain

Rich cocoa Memento ink
Jet black archival ink by Ranger
