Winners for Challenge #199

Well, it wasn't quite the hottest spot north of Havana here at As You See It Challenges, but we did score some pretty sweet entries from our Copacabana colour challenge!  Here are the winners:

Our Top Pick is:  Nancy at Nananas

That stunning flower was the breathtaking focus of Nancy's sweet card and it looks as though it was just made to pair with the designer paper in the background. Nancy managed to use the strong colours in the challenge without them overpowering each other to create a crisp, fresh and delightful design!                                                                                

And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James

Joanne made good use of her dark and light Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to put the brakes on the intensity of these colours in this beautiful birthday card. Using a large single image stamp in the darkest ink of the challenge, she colours in the image with the lighter tones for the most part, except for the sentiments, creating a focal point. Even with the bright and cheery background, her colouring manages to walk that fine balanced line and creates a masterpiece of tropical pinks and yellows that would do the Copacabana proud!! 
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

I'm issuing a special invitation to everyone to join us tomorrow for a very special challenge - our 200th Challenge!! There will be some special features for this occasion so don't miss the surprises!
