The lovely Astrid has kindly organised an ICAD swap and as I'd not heard of them before I decided to take part - an ICAD is a piece of artwork measuring 5" x 3" and you can read all about them on Astrid's blog if you follow this link. This is the first one I made and it is heading off into the postal system today for one of my swap partners. Card was coloured using distress inks with the addition of some texture paste applied though a stencil mask. The image is from Nice Crane Designs who have some wonderful imagery available and I've simply added some scraps of die cut lace, recycled cardboard and a little charm together with a tag quote using a Tim Holtz stamp.. I've always found working on the small ATC size quite restrictive and although these are only slightly larger, somehow I found it a nicer size to work with and I'm looking forward to receiving a couple of swaps in due course.
