Creative Challenge 1


I love a creative challenge and recently Clare's Craftroom started her Creative Challenges for 2015 and I knew instantly I needed to join in, little did I know I would end up Interstate and so sick that I didn't have time to source my original idea, but I will keep my original idea close so I can hopefully recreate for my next challenge

Clare shared my prompt with my which is the colour PINK and the below picture 

                                        

So many inspirations 

Pink - a loveable colour!
Coffee Mug - Polka Dots, Buttons, Porcelain, Warmth, Hot
Surroundings - Wooden, Stripes, Rustic

I could really go on all day about this one photo

I decided to create a cute Easter card using sharpies and some stuffing 


How I interpreting this creative challenge

I chose to create an Easter Card because Easter is just over a week away

Natural Card stock - Using the surroundings from the photo of the coffee mug
Easter Bunny - Created using multiple dots and some stuffing to create the polka dot coffee mug and warmth and what would be the colour choice - PINK


Get your sharpies out to create our own Easter card
