Winners for Challenge #233 - Hues in Twos

It turns out it's darn hard to pick just one favourite colour duo. Most people chose one of their favourites, or their current favourite, or their favourite at this time of year, reserving their right to choose another favourite at any other time, like the next day!! But you made a valiant effort and you created some lovely projects with those Hues in Twos! Now we have to come up with winners and here they are:

We had two Top Picks this week:

Our First Top Pick is: Heather Heroldt

Heather's precision stamping of the intricate tiles in her entry really caught our attention, as well as her eye-catching duo of Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape, a combo made in heaven! This intricate mosaic is otherwise clean and sharp and a treat for the eyes! Well stamped, Heather!

Our Second Top Pick is: dj at Sendable Sentiments

dj created a really adorable baby card with the use of a simple layout and a beautiful colour combo of teal and brown. The patterned paper added variety and the little booties on the twine were perfectly located on the page for balance! The different fonts in the sentiment, as well as the contrast between die cut and stamped also added to the visual appeal of dj's project!

Our first Featured Artist is: Jen Mitchell

Jen has created a beautiful pastel CAS card for her entry. Her yellow and grey colour duo is so peaceful, and the die cuts she has chosen are perfect for those colours. The composition is sophisticated and pleasing! The use of the same die cuts in vellum allowing the other colours to show through adds an extra layer to the layout! So elegant!

And we think you may want to check out the following Honorable Mentions on their site:

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Come and check out our new Recipe Challenge tomorrow morning on our blog! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
