icad 2013 :: index card nos. 3 and 4

Here it is day 10 of the index-card-a-day project and I still love it.

I can't believe that it is already day 10 and I have only posted my first 2 index cards. I figure it is about time that I get busy and share some more of them. These little guys are starting to pile up around here.

For these next 2 index cards I decided to use the ICAD weekly prompts over at Daisy Yellow.

When I used gesso to make index card no. 2, I ended up pouring out way too much. So that meant lots of blank index cards got prepped with the left over gesso. Here are 2 of them. I have to say I like the different results that I got from using gesso.

I used markers to color in the stripes on this index card. Usually the index card just soaks up the marker but using the gesso really helped the colors to pop. This card is sparkly too. When it was finished I spritzed it with some glimmer mist. You can't see it in the photo but it's there.

It was like this prompt was special made just for me. Since the meaning of my name is Crown, I just knew that I had to use it.
