With my right arm in a cast, I'm even more into die cuts than usual. My left hand can cut and can squeeze glue - and with my fingers out of my cast, my right hand can hold the die cut in a tweezer. It actually works (just don't tell my wrist doc!) I've used a stamping platform to do a few sentiments, but no fancier stamping because I can't exactly color the images left-handed!
I did try to use some ink on this card; I wanted to sponge a little at the base of each leaf to add dimension. I already the colors picked and the leaves cut when I realized two of the three were Stampin' Up colors and I dare anybody to open their inks with a broken wrist!! I have a lot of inks and I'm sure I could have found substitutes - but it just seemed like a lot of work and the other thing I've discovered in the last few weeks is the need to let things go and move on. Just basic hygiene is an overwhelming amount of work. Anything else in life is less important!! Very oddly, I seem to be finishing my cards more quickly than before because I'm letting go!
I hope to see you play along with us at The Card Concept!

This is charming! I like purple on fall cards too, Kim. Pink is becoming a favorite for them too! YES... those SU inks are a booger to get open even with two good hands!!!ReplyDelete
