April Rolodex Card-a-Day (Part 1)

I managed to keep up with my RCADs during April, creating 27 out of the possible 30 days of the month! I just love making these - no rules, no pressure, no stress. Clean up the worktable or add some little treasures you want to keep and remember but don't know where to put them.  Since there will be a lot of photos, I will split this into two posts, adding more tomorrow.

Distress resist and butterflies cut from patterned paper

Scrap paper from painting a chipboard die - too cool to throw away

Embossed wallpaper with acrylic Silks glaze

Clear EP resist with stamping, glassine flowers and stickers

Mosaic with paper scraps

Alcohol inks with alpha stickers as mask; stamping; doodling

Stencil & white paint, sprayed with ink while wet

Book page background, ink, stamped; title cut from paper bag

Homemade texture paste, TH stencil, spray ink, flower cut from paper

Scraped paint background scrap; napkin image

Gesso, clear embossed script stamp, distress inks, stamped butterflies

Mixed media - paints, stamping, doodles

Picture of great palette found on Pinterest; background is scrap of sprayed paper

Leftover paper strips from a class, woven, stitched, title stamped

"Wrinkle-free distress ink technique"; stamped and colored collage image

Hope you'll visit tomorrow to see the rest of the month's cards!

Not only the cards but you got 27 out of 30.
I would have done good to get 5 done at the rate I go. ;o)
