Less is More wk37 - cocktail

This week at Less is More Chrissie and Mandi have set the theme of 'cocktail'... it doesn't have to be an actual cocktail, it could be the colours or however you want to interpret it, but I went for the obvious as I have no imagination this week lol...


I've printed the image - Summer Quencher from DigiStamp Boutique - 3 times and then coloured them with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added a little pearl on each flower.  Normally I use pencils if I'm colouring directly on the card base, but I bought a box of thick white card that was on special offer at Papermill Direct and the pens don't bleed through it!  I'm sure they would if I did any blending, but for simple flat colouring like I've done here it was fine :o)  The sentiment is Penny Black.

Oh and this is my cocktail apparently...



You Are Made Of Passion, Genius, and Courage




3 parts Passion

2 parts Genius

1 part Courage



And a Splash of Energy



Serve over ice


Who's pinched my 'splash of energy' then?!  Because I've definitely not got it...

Oh, while I'm here... do any of you sell on Etsy? I do have a couple of places locally where I sell my cards, but I'd love to sell a bit more and feel like I was properly contributing.  Is Etsy easy to use and have you sold much?

Gorgeous card Lisa. Love the colours of the cocktails.
I have sold on Etsy - last year - but things went very quiet this year. It is very easy to use. I also sell on Folksy which is a UK based site.
