ICAD: Doodles, a Fish, an Owl and a lot more

I’m participating this year in the ICAD (Index-Card-a-Day) Challenge. You can find all details HERE at Daisy Yellow. The bottom line is to create something every day on and index card for 61 days in a row. The theme for the first week was drawing and doodling. This was indeed a challenge for me but it became fun soon. I didn’t always use the optional prompts. Some of my cards are just black and white but a few are really colorful. Keep your sunglasses within reach.

ICAD - Doodle Fish by Vintage with Laces Prompt “Chevron”

ICAD - Doodles by Vintage with Laces

ICAD - Doodle Map by Vintage with Laces
Prompt “Draw a Map”

ICAD - Doodle Mail by Vintage with Laces Prompt “Mailbox”

ICAD - Doodle Owl by Vintage with Laces
Prompt “Owl”

ICAD - Doodle Flowers by Vintage with Laces

I would have one more to show you but I couldn’t get a decent picture of it. Maybe my camera thought it was too colorful. I’ll show you the card when I’m able to take a picture with another camera.

The theme for the second week was painting which was even more out of my comfort zone than drawing and doodling. I had bought a package of watercolors some years ago and the tubes had never seen sunlight since I had put them in a drawer back then. Now it was time to finally play with them. I predominantly painted the backgrounds and then added other techniques.

ICAD - Word Search Puzzle by Vintage with Laces Prompt “Grapefruit & Cherry”

ICAD - Doodles by Vintage with Laces
Prompt “Carrot & Lemon”. I used them as colors here but what you can’t see is, that I stamped the circles with pieces of carrots.

ICAD - Picture Puzzle by Vintage with Laces
Prompt “Ginger & ?” Ginger is my background and parts of the frame. I hope you can solve that little picture puzzle for the second part of the prompt. If not, I’ve drawn really bad.

ICAD -  Parsnip by Vintage with Laces Prompt “Parsnip & Kiwi”. Kiwi is the frame color here.

ICAD - No Plum by Vintage with Laces
Prompt “Blueberry & Plum”. While blueberry makes my background, I might have kind of cheated with the plum somehow.

ICAD - Salt & Pepper by Vintage with LacesPrompt “Salt & Pepper”

It’s a fun challenge and you could still join in. I’m glad I especially gave doodling a try. I really like that.
I’ll be back soon with my entry for the “Summer of Color” challenge. At least I hope so because I haven’t even started yet.

Have a great Friday!

Wow Julia what a lot of diversion for you here!
It is so great to see how each person interprets the prompts.
You have all sorts of talents hidden in there somewhere for sure.
Your doodling is fabulous and your owl is just amazing and so full of life not to mention your drawings like the parsnip.

It is so good to see you putting your energies into all of these new ideas. It must be very challenging for you and I really admire your results.

Love and hugs sweet friend,
