Crème de menthe?

I fancied making a really simple monochromatic card using my favourite colour, Certainly Celery. But what’s in the glass? Crème de menthe? Or limeade? And one of those hideous green cherries, ugh!

I coloured the image using my Certainly Celery ink pad and a blender pen – I squeezed the closed pad to create a pool of ink on the inside of the lid. A little doodling around the edges gives the image a “frame”.
