Here's my seventh weekly set of index cards, and my second last little collection for 2016. After the fun of creating collage postcards for my art course, I decided to explore it a bit further in my index cards, and you can see some of the results of mixing paint and found images here.

Index-Card-A-Day (#ICAD) 2016 Week 7 round up

My favourite piece from this week's set was the marbling shown in the centre card. I had just watched a Creativebug tutorial on Facebook about paper marbling using shaving cream and food colouring, and realised that I had everything I needed to give it a try right away. So I did :)

Marbling on index cards with shaving cream and food colouring

You can see in the above photo that I made a few marbled index cards - first with red food colouring, then adding some blue. Finally I was left with a purple mix that I added a little extra red to. Those last ones were the most subtle yet effective pieces, and I used one of them (with just a small decorative embellishment) for the index card challenge. The others I've put aside for next year.

All of my cards for the Index-Card-A-Day challenge (#ICAD2016) can be viewed individually on Flickr.
