Tropical Happy Hour

My store, Seven Hills Crafts, is sponsoring my favourite blog challenge again this month - Less is More - so I am guest blogging for their first challenge this month which is all about tropical colours.  When I thought tropical, the first thing that came to mind was cocktails (yeah I'm sure that came as a shock to those who know me lol!   I do love a drink with an umbrella!!!) so here's what I came up with.

I used the fabulous "cocktail mixer" set from Newton's Nook and coloured all the images with zig clean color pens and a waterbrush to get a bright but still translucent look.  I love colouring with zigs this way as you can layer the colour up to get a bolder/brighter look but also get a pale shading effect without having a million colours.

I added a couple of strips of citrus themed paper to ground the glasses and finished with one of the fun sentiments from the stamp set which is a pretty decent philosophy on life if you ask me ;-)

Have fun with the challenge this month.
