Challenge #3 - Anything but a Card

I want to start by CONGRATULATING the WINNERS from Challenge #2 - BANNERS!
Thank you for playing along and sharing your creative talents with all of us here at Pinque Peacock.
If you missed that post, you can click HERE to stop over and Congratulate the Winners!

Now, onto our 3rd Challenge!  
This will be our LAST biweekly challenge and we will then be hosting challenges MONTHLY!
The Pinquettes and I decided the last challenge flew by WAY TOO FAST.   Many voiced that they just didn't get a chance to create in time for it, we have listened!

So, starting with Challenge #4 (which goes live on 3/31/14), we are keeping our challenges open LONGER!  The challenges will remain open ALL MONTH LONG to give more time for you to create and to give more time for others to find out about the challenges and join the fun!

Now, onto our 3rd Challenge!  
The theme for this challenge is
Show us your imagination and create something, anything, other than a card.  You can use any colors you wish and it doesn't just have to be your paper crafts!

Here are some Past Pinquette Projects that can help you think a little outside your comfort zones and get you inspired to create and join the fun!



Lets go over some rules and requirements.


1.  Create a Project that is ANYTHING but a CARD.
You can create from any medium of your choosing: Paper, Fabric, Paint, Glitter, and More!  It can be paper crafting (layouts, quilling, gift boxes), jewelry, frames, mixed media, ANYTHING!!!!
The possibilities are ENDLESS!
So, use your imagination Peacocks!!!!

2.  You can enter up to 3 separate projects, but must have a separate blog post for each.

3.

4.  If you have used any Pinque Peacock Products on your Project, and you link to those products in the shop somewhere in your Blog Post or FB share, you will receive an EXTRA ENTRY into the prize drawing. Just enter your name in the Linky Widget below with the word PINQUE next to your name.

  1. what beautiful samples from teh DT! I am planning to do some altered pieces this week some time so I should have a chance to play!

    1. Thank you so much for that sweet compliment to the DT Paula :) So happy to have you joining the fun!

  2. oh well...never got to do an altered item but I did a layout. I used the bottle caps from the Pinque Peacock shop!

    1. Can't wait to stop over and check it out! THANKS FOR SHARING!!!

  3. I'm guessing challenge #4 will go live on April 1st? Why doesn't the linky show the submisssions? Took me awhile to figure out how to view them.

    1. Running a little behind the last 2 weeks since my kids were on Spring Break, but gonna get to crack-a-lacking and get this finished up today! I think I may have selected the wrong Linky Widget and that is why the submissions only show if you click the YOU'RE NEXT tool above. Sorry about the confusion darling!
