Doing a Double Take at Crafty Creations Challenges

Wednesday! Halfway through another week. Of course that means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges. This week we are asking you to Make Two: whatever you make, make two of them! While they don't have to be identical, they should have similar designs, images, colours... Here's what I came up with using an image from this week's sponsor, Stamp Fairy:

Same image and sentiment, similar colouring and layout; the differences are in the details. I made this one first:

I coloured Lenny the bear with Prismacolour pencils, die cut and layered him, then added the sentiment. Then I went to work with Glossy Accents, Enamel Accents and Stickles for lots of texture and shine! 
Then I moved on to my second version:

Same image, same size, but this time I used my watercolour pencils just for comparison. (I go back and forth as to which pencils I prefer. :D) I wanted to highlight the cherry on the sundae, so went with this cute patterned paper and some extra cherries as well. I was going to layer the circles the same way as the first card, but they happened to land on my work space this way, and I liked it! I went with stamping the sentiment directly on the card base this time, instead of on a banner. Rock candy distress Stickles on the sundae, cherries, and just a hint on the bear's nose. 
Join us and link up your double creation this week!

Two great layouts, Lindsey. I really like how different the overall look is. Your use of patterned paper is once again spot on.
