Less is More – Week 37

Just catching back up with things this morning, I had another Migraine on Sunday and it’s left me a little drained. I’m quite calm about our house (and area) move but I think subconsciously it may be causing the Migraines as I have had more in the last few weeks than I’ve had for years. And on top of that LO was awake (and ready to play!!) at 4:45am. I feel rather Zombie like so thought I would have a quick cuppa and a sit down and post this LIM card I made last night.

Now Chrissie and Mandi have given me quite a challenge this week, their theme is cocktails and after a good rummage through my stamps the only stamp with a slight link to any kind of cocktail was a little cherry stamp from Hero Arts. So on went the thinking cap and this is what happened:

Cherry Cocktail Card (2)

I a drew a cocktail glass on copy paper and cut it out to form a mask. I used the outer mask first and stamped the cherries and then used the inner part of the mask to cover the cherries and inked around the edges to add a little definition. I watercoloured the cherries just to give a hit of colour and finally added a glossy cherry to the top of my cocktail.

Hope you like
