The next 5 ICADs

Hello lovely visitors and thank you for looking in here today.
I finally managed to complete my next 5 ICADs. It's busy days in my day job at the moment and it is hard to fit art time and blogging in right now, but here goes....
If you are wondering what ICADs are or would like to see the first ones I made, - just click HERE
On to today's cards:
Using Visible Image, Design by Ryn and Unity stamps.
Vitruvian Man by Leonardo is sadly not a stamp but was cut from a piece of very cool wrapping paper. Background stamping with the Unity stamp and a really old text stamp which reminds me of Leonardo's amazing script....
Paper Artsy stamp over painted back ground
This is my personal favourite, yet was the quickest to do, it's just a bit of Heartfelt Creations paper with some background stencilling and stamping and a couple of fussy cut butterflies. These ICADs are perfect to use up scraps of paper...
Another painted background, background stamping with Fresco Finish Snowflake paint and a La Blanche stamp.

Well that's it, short and sweet, which is all I have time for at the mo....

Thanks so much for visiting like always and have a great weekend!!!

These are STUNNING but just sooooo AMAZING to me Astrid. I have completely enjoyed seeing every one that you have created. It's like going to a museum and looking at it all but nothing is alike. You have made so many INCREDIBLE creations - one after another - it's like your mind just never runs out of ways to make a different look and design. Truly mind boggling to me but GEE WHIZ am I sooooooooo glad that you can do this and are sharing. THEY ARE JUST SPECTACULAR. j.

Hello Astrid,
I am so sorry that I am not around to visit your Blog, never imagined I would be absent from commenting for such a length of time.
As always, your art makes my heart skip a beat with your exceptional backgrounds and always, always beautifully blended colours, exquisite. As it happens, my favourite is the same as your own. Love that background. I hope all is well with you and I also hope that my next visit will be sooner rather than later.
One last thing, thank you for all the comments and support you have continued to give me during my time away, it means so much to me.
Wishes
Lynne

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
