I've done double duty again this week. 😎 Some sketches are simply begging for more than one attempt! This is one of those sketches.
First up is a pretty springy version done digitally. I like to design digitally first, then have a go with papers and stamps. Anyone else?

Next up is a pretty Christmas version with a little bit of everything from embossing, die cutting, stamping, and ink distressing.
After I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white daisy mat, I switched out a plate and used the basic ovals thin cuts. I used my round sponge and a bit of Candy Apple ink to distress the edges. I wanted to add another oval behind it but I'd already used the largest one in the set. Dabbing ink around the edge it is! Work with what you've got peeps. The holly is stamped and fussy cut, then attached with some thin foam dots. A pair of silver glitter gems finished it off nicely.
Tip: I cut the sponge into wedges then store them in the bag the sponge came in. I don't use the sponge wedges very much and keeping them in the bag after each use helps keep the mess down.
