I mentioned my battle with watercolours last week, and in this week's #ICAD2015 (Index-Card-A-Day) round up you can see some of the results:

Index-Card-A-Day (#ICAD) 2015 Week 3 round up

I've been trying to master the swirly abstract watercolour background effect. Nope. That isn't going to happen apparently. But I keep trying, and sometimes the effect is quite pleasing. Unfortunately the two cards with eye motifs (one in black fineliner, the other using masking fluid) required me to do the watercolour background last. No second chances! So of course those two came out pretty messy. Oh well. Of course index cards are not the best medium for either watercolour or masking fluid, so that didn't really help matters.

I tend to like the doodled designs using fineliner the best, but I also need to break out of my comfort zone and try new things. So although the results aren't always perfect, at least I'm having a go :)

I'm posting all of my index cards individually on Flickr.
