ICAD Days 7 and 8

And here are my cards from the last couple of days:

This one was from today.  Anybody like to own up to recognising the lyrics?  lol.  They were from a 1970's hit called 'Circles' sung by 'The New Seekers.'  

The background of the card was created by drawing circles using water soluble felt pens and then washing over them with a water brush.   The lyrics were created by using Word.  


Yesterday's card was very different:
It's true I do!  (want to visit New York).  

This rather moody looking background was created by accident.  I decided to try a new technique (to me) of adding window cleaner to some acrylic paint, with the  hope of it creating some kind of a resist.  But whether it was the brand of window cleaner (Marks & Sparks) or the type of paint I used (the cheapest possible) I don't know but it wasn't working on the card.  It did, however, create quite an interesting blend on the kitchen roll that I used to clean up - so I stuck that onto the card instead!   

I was watching a DVD of a film called 'New York, I Love You' (bit racey!) and decided that my wish to go there could be my theme.  I photocopied the cover from the DVD, cut it out and put it all together.  It's a bit dark and not my favourite card, but it counts as that day's ICAD.

Thanks for looking today and for any comments,
Nicky

Hmmm - I'll have to give that technique a go. Love that you used the tissue instead :D

I was trying to place where I knew the circles quote from so I'm glad you told us as it would've bugged me all day!
