The Sugar Bowl. Their challenge this time was a great sketch and a 'please include' of 'Thankfulness'. I thought little Poinsettia would make a great Christmas thank you card. She is so adorable and there is no flower quite like the poinsettia! Beautiful!!
This little gal turned out wayyyyy different than my original vision. I was going to make her a tow head... a nearly white tow head. When we were at the park over the weekend, I saw the cutest little girl and her hair was almost white. Soooo cute! So I played around trying to come up with the right mix of colors, but I just couldn't get my copics to make it work. So, I ended up making her a dark brunette. That's close, right?? Really it's because the red on the poinsettia bled into her hair. I worked very hard to clean it up with my colorless blender, but red it just soooo tough to clean up... thus dark brunette she is. : )
I sponged around the image with VersaMagic Niagra Mist. Her little dress has been paper pieced.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you'll stop back again soon.
