Simply the holly and the ivy

This is for the sketch on CPS 196:

I used a textured linen base card, stamping the holly directly on it (part of Tanda holly doodles by Sheila Oliver). The Whispers ivy stamp was stamped on to a piece of BG paper before colouring in. The gold parts of the holly swirls was coloured with sakura metallic gold; the rest of the colour with promarkers and copics, using a promarker blender to show a bit of variation on the ivy leaves.
