Creative Creations Challenges #22 - Inspired by a book

Good Morning to you all .... and a very WINDY morning it is here in the UK!! Didn't sleep a wink last night what with the torrential rain and lashing winds, plus the fact my darling little boy decided to patter into my bed at 1.30am! Seriously, how much space does a little one need? LOL!  As soon as the light of day dawned, it also dawned on me that I am now minus two fence panels .... don't you just love Mother Nature at times!!

Well, it's challenge time again over at Creative Creations Challenges and the theme for the next fortnight is Inspired by a Book

Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabby Sassy Studio Designs who are offering the lucky winner 4 digis of their choice!

I bet you'll never guess which book inspired me for my little creation ;)

This is the fabulous Cruella Honey and yep, you've more than likely guessed, the book for my inspiration is the one and only 101 Dalmatians.  What a classic! When I was about 10, there was a TV program called Take Hart and I sent in a picture I had drawn of the evil Cruella.  Now, I was hoping and praying my 'masterpiece' was going to be aired on national TV, but, alas, my drawing wasn't anywhere to be seen in the 'gallery' ..... I've always put it down to the fact that I'd forgotten to put my name & address on the back!!! That MUST have been the reason it wasn't shown .... LOL

Well, this particular Cruella is definitely a honey, unlike the original, and I thoroughly enjoyed colouring her with my Copics and playing 'dot-to-dot' on her fabulous coat! I then transferred the image onto my candle and added this gorgeous spotty, dotty ribbon to give an extra bit of glamour!

So, what book would inspire you to create?  We really hope you'll join us this time and we look forward to seeing your fabulous entries!
