A Spoonful of Sugar & Arty Girlz challenges.

A Spoonful of Sugar is a sketch challenge this week to which I added the Arty Girlz brief of something hand drawn.
I like a challenge that pushes me in a direction which I would not normally go. I decided to be brave and hand draw the main image. I wouldn't normally have used these colours (I think I would have preferred blues) but had to work with what I have here in Germany. I chose Christmas as the theme and dicided to sketch a little eskimo girl. Not being overly brave I used pencil and a watercolour wash. I lightly 'Stickled' the fur and her snowball. She turned out rather bigger than I had intended but I decided I could live with that. The papers I've had forever and brads, flowers and ribbon are from stash. Overall I'm pleased with the final result, although it's photogrphed a little dark - probably the fog we've had in Germany since I have arrived.
