The amazing thing is that no editing was needed.
These flowers are fluorescent pink all on their own.
I finally got some time to photograph my latest index cards. I told myself that this year I was going to share ALL of the index cards that I create and not just some of them as I have in previous years. If I am going to make that goal, I guess I had better get busy sharing those cards.
For my second index card I did a quick wonky doodle. It makes me cross-eyed just looking at it. It's neat how just a few stripes can make such a trippy pattern. For supplies I just used a black pen. Pentel EnerGel liquid gel pen to be exact.
I have been wanting to update my blog template for quite awhile now, years actually, but I haven't had the time to devote to it. Tonight, I quickly wanted to check to see how a custom template would look so I did a quick backup of my blog template.
I usually copy and save the blog HTML and use that as my backup, but this time I made the mistake of using the Full Template Backup that Blogger provides. Big. Mistake. I lost it all! All my widgets and special coding. Ugh! I have no idea all that I have lost because I have been adding and updating the same template for years!
So, you may end up seeing weird things happening on the blog over the next few days.
Note to self: NEVER EVER use Bloggers full template backup!
I am really getting a late start on sharing my index cards for this year's Index card-a-day challenge.
I don't usually follow the ICAD prompts so I really hadn't paid any attention to them this year. Last week, when I was looking through the ICAD Facebook group I started to see a lot of owls. My first card this year has owls. Apparently, I end up following the prompts without even trying or I just have way too many owl stamps. I even did an owl card during my first Index card-a-day challenge back in 2012.
For this index card I used rubber stamps, stencils, Distress ink, Stickles and Modge Podge. I find that my stamped images are never dark enough whenever I use black ink so I usually have to use an ink pen over any stamped images that I do.
What I learned: The new pen that I bought during last year's ICAD smears when using Modge Podge. At first, I was a bit disappointed but now when I look at it, I kind of like the effect.
