Prompted by Prompts

During last year’s ICAD Challenge, I very rarely used the optional prompts, but this year I have made several cards using Tammy’s prompts already. This card was created using the prompt “dragonfly”:

icad #4 v

The sketch is of a Norfolk Hawker, a local, but sadly endangered, variety of moth. The poetry is care of Tennyson.

Next up is a card made following the prompt “fish”:

icad # 7 v

Then we have “doodle your name”:

icad # 7 v1

And this was my take on the prompt “experiment”:

icad # 10 v

Gman created a card using the prompt “draw your camera”:

icad #5 g

To see the ICAD prompts for week two, see this post.

    These are great! Impressive dragonfly, fun fish with some wonderful Pacific Northwest Coast Indian influence.

    Gorgeous dragonfly!!

  7. I have been trying to use the prompts as well, and I normally rebel against that, but I added it into the challenge for me, though if I don’t hold myself to it religiously if I am inspired by something else! 🙂 Love these cards. Love the science one, I believe I have commented on Flickr because it sticks in my mind.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
