Winners for Challenge #256

I think as crafters we are all animal lovers too, because our Fill in the Blank Challenge #256 - Zoology, about our favourite animals struck a stamping chord and we had some gorgeous entries this time. Oh, my goodness! Choosing winners was like a photo finish in a horse race or finding the queen in a bee hive! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Deborah Wheeler


Deborah's mastery of masking and watercolour has created a wonderful scene for this dear little cat whose mind is on more than the beautiful scenery behind her. The peaceful palette brings the cat, the birds and the embossed sentiment into perfect focus! What a whimsical scene!

Our Featured Artist is: Stef Perry


Stef has made this party bear just come to life with her masterful copic colouring skills! He pops right off the page! And the colour choices are perfect for bringing the image into sharp focus. The little details like the linen thread from the balloons tucked under the bear's arm and the enamel dots as finishing touches create a fine Featured Artist award winner.
