Welcome to Artsy Index Cards, Days 61-80. I'm nearing the finish line on this 100 Day Project. This batch is my favorite so far. I've used a ton of Ranger Distress products as well as Dylusions Ink Sprays, paints, and mediums.
100 Days of Artsy Index Cards, Part 4
Besides stamps, I've included some of Tim Holtz's chipboard sentiments and even the fortune from a Fortune Cookie. I also used some of my Sizzix texture fades. The first index card shown below has an artist trading card that I embossed with a clock texture fade. A texture fade is an embossing folder that pushes a pattern through your paper. You'll see the same technique on the card beneath it, but on that one I embossed the entire card.
The yellow index card with the girl shown below is one of my favorites. It's a mini tag on a larger tag on an index card with texture paste.
I also used up quite a bit of washi tape on this go around. You can see it in a single strip in the first card below, as well as in the entire background of the second (hot air balloon) card below.
My cards are all 4″ X 6″. I've been pretty consistently surprised by how much I can fit onto that small piece of paper. I like to think of these as mini art journal pages.
