Ruff Diamond


Over on the PaperArtsy blog this week Sue has been using lots of greens, so I just had to play along.  Now this wasn't as easy as it sounds as my index and middle fingers are swollen and bruised from playing netball on Tuesday night, to the point where I had to cut the corrugated diamonds left handed with a craft knife, hence the reason they are a bit ruff!!

Now I followed Sue most of the way until it came to the images, as you 'll know by now, I don't do flowers!!  The images are coloured with portfolio pastels and smudged (with left finger!!).

I love this Sam - the corrugated diamonds look great. I hope your fingers are better now.
I had a hand injury on Monday - grabbed hold of a pot handle that I'd forgotten I'd taken out of the oven a couple of minutes before - very painful but it's ok now.
xxx Hazel.

Very dexterous with your left hand! I am impressed.... It is very pretty, Sam, and great bumping with your stencil! (mine went a bit cock-eyed!)

Hope you'll be able to create with all your digits soon - mind you, the piece looks fab, I wouldn't have known anything was wrong if you hadn't have mentioned you were digitally challenged lol.

But I do see some flowers ;-) LOL.
Lovely creation Sam. I don't mind that the diamonds are a bit rough; I like 'm that way.

Well I'm impressed you can cut that well with your left hand! A wonderful piece (I still NEED those Lynne Perella stamps...)

Sorry to hear about your fingers. You would never know from the look of your artwork that you had wrong handed it. It is lovely.
Hugs, Neet xx

Hope your fingers improve soon Sam -sounds painful but love the way you have adapted and made this super piece of art.

Green is definitely you and all the colours fit so well together.

Have a great weekend

Love Chrissie x

Sue said...

This is brilliant Sam, very you colours, and I love the stamps you've picked - especially the little flowers along the bottom lol. Hope your fingers get better soon, and next time no fighting on the netball court :-). Have a fab weekend. Sue xx

Deborah said...

I doubt I could cut at all with my other hand. Fab flowerless (lol) tag, Sam. Hope your fingers get better soon.
