We had a cook-off at the As You See It Blog over the last couple of weeks! That's what happens when you have a Recipe Challenge for a masculine design going on! And if you're looking for some great ideas for cards for your guys, you should check out these projects! After sampling all of these delicious dishes, we've come up with some well deserved winners (and it wasn't a piece of cake to choose them either!) Here they are:
Our Top Pick is: Colleen Begley
Colleen has created such an amazing Hawaiian image collage from her collection of retro Hawaiian stamps! And that background - the texture and colour is to die for! The Design Team were in agreement about the visual and textural appeal of this creation for a masculine design and she has included all the elements in the challenge in unique ways!
Our Featured Artist is: Jolanda Johnstone
The Design Team love how Jolanda combined all the elements in the challenge to come up with this design! The neutral palette really packs a punch when teamed up with the gorgeous texture provided by both the embossing folder and the choice of DSP, even when it's muted a bit with the vellum. The focal image, stamped on vellum and enhanced and protected with clear embossing powder, is a striking look! This is a great choice for a masculine design!
And we think you may want to check out the following Honorable Mentions on their sites:
10. Angie McKenzie
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Come and check out our new Theme Challenge tomorrow morning on our blog! Our winners today can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
