Challenge #261 - Clean and Fresh

There's something innately refreshing about the colour palette that team member, Leanne came up with for our newest challenge. With the deep purple of Blackberry Bliss, the bright freshness of Granny Apple Green and the cleanness of silver and white. We hope you enjoy designing with these colours as much as we did!

Each time we have a colour challenge, the Featured Artist will have a chance to become a Guest Designer for our next Recipe Challenge 4 weeks from now. So enter with that in mind! We're so excited to work with you for a challenge!!

Remember, if you don't have the Stampin' Up! colours, use the colours you have that are the closest. Your project should use all these colours only and 1 neutral. (Neutrals include black, white, vanilla or Crumb Cake.)

Winners for Challenge #260 - Perpendicular

There's something so satisfying about right angles. Maybe that's why they call them "right" angles! At any rate, they make for a lovely card layout and the entries in our latest challenge, Perpendicular, really did them justice! Here are the winners:

Our Top Pick is: Deborah Wheeler

Deborah did an amazing job ink blending for the horizontal AND vertical elements of this sketch!  The Design Team loved the way the colours in both of these elements echoed each other. The were the perfect background for the beautiful lined stamp of the heron! All in all, an artistically beautiful entry!

Our Featured Artist is: Akiko Sudano

This week's Featured Artist, Akiko, has created a stunningly beautiful landscape that deserves to be framed! From her subtle but lovely sponged sunset in the background, to the masked birch trees she has stamped to the details of the land and the leaves and the textured layers, this is a work of art! The Design Team was unanimous!

Challenge #260 - Perpendicular

Perpendicular elements are a sure thing in a sketch, and thanks to Design Team member, Jane, we have a great sketch making use of them this week. Have some fun with it, especially with the main image panel. The sky's the limit with what you can include on that!

Feel free to rotate or flip the sketch, just keep the integrity of it, so we can recognize it.

How graphic did the Design Team get with the sketch? Let's see:
