Challenge #198 - Wings

Welcome to our new sketch challenge! The reason for calling this one Wings is obvious, but don't be stuck on the birds, butterflies and bees! That shape can be anything you want! Spring is sprung here in my part of the world, but in other hemispheres the leaves may be falling so just enjoy the layout! Go on - earn your Wings!


Let's see what flights of fancy the Design Team took:
















Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch and to substitute one   shape for another but we must still be able to see the sketch   in your finished submission.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI198 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Winners for Challenge #197 - Starbursts and Lace

Simple or fancy, this sketch for our latest challenge left a lot of leeway for interpretation and we got so many sweet designs: delicate to rustic and beyond! Like sunbeams through lace curtains conjures up feelings of warmth and home, your creations just made us all warm inside! Here are the winners:

Our Top Pick is: Mary Deatherage 



The neutral palette of Mary's Easter Card is unusual but so artistically effective! The Design Team loved the layering of her sentiment panel, and the way that the twine bow and burlap ribbon added some rustic texture! The use of the white craft ink was particularly effective. If a card can be rustic and elegant at the same time, I think Mary nailed it!                                                                                

And our Featured Artist is: Jenny Engelke


                                                           
Jenny must have spent oodles of time working on that beautiful bouquet that is the focal point of her card. With a variety of colour shades and floral shapes, layered so carefully, she has created a spectacular 3D bunch of florals but the overall impression is clean and simple. So gorgeous!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new sketch challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
