|Load a sponge with white and mark out the ear shapes on the forehead, apply the paint to the eye area and over the bottom half of the face, taking care not to go beyond the outer edge of the eye.||Load the other edge of the sponge with lilac and apply around the base of the ears, into the centre of the ears and down the nose to blend into the white areas.||Lightly load just the edge of your sponge with black and create the muzzle and nostrils, then darken the eyelids, create the mane and outline the ears.||Load the brush with black and outline the face and features as shown.||Load the brush with white and add highlights - then apply glitter.|

|With a wet sponge load on white red and dark red on to the sponge, apply the sponge firmly but gently around the eye areas patting firmly with small round movements side to side to blend the colours together. Make a typical butterfly shape.||
Begin your butterfly outer line by doing a small thin line going outwards from the eye towards the forehead, press down to make the line thicker and move the brush side to side to make a wavy line then end the line by angle ling it towards the eye, repeat this movement around the butterfly on both sides.
|Add the red hollies and the green leafs, using a round brush. The leafs can be achieved by flicking the paint from the hollies outwards and repeating the movement to making the leafs longer and fatter.||
Add the shadow lines in black around the hollies, leafs and butterfly.
Start adding the dots and white lines to the butterfly try to make the dots different sizes, larger on the outside smaller going in towards the eye, add some stars and do the lips.

|Start by sponging on yellow on the forehead, nose and cheeks, next sponge orange from the out side blending in to the yellow, dab a bit of rusty brown to the outer edges, finally sponge white to the mouth and eyes||With a large flat brush, brush the black on to the nose (from the bottom of the nose up) almost like a flicking motion upwards. With the da vici brush add the muzzle, then add the teeth (white of the teeth first then the black lines).||With the da vinci brush, start the stripes over the eye, begin the stripe parallel to the eye then take it up to cover the edge of the white, then add the stripes over the forehead making the stripes thin to begin then thick then thin again.||
Add Stripes around the eyes and cheeks, working the lines from the outside of the face going inwards, starting with thin lines then pressing the brush down to get thicker lines then lifting the brush to finish with thin lines.
|As a final touch add some small dots or stripes under the eye and top of the forehead and chin.|
