Winners for Challenge #261 - Clean and Fresh and our Next Guest Designer

We're excited to announce the winners of Challenge #261 because the Featured Artist will be our Guest Designer for the next Recipe Challenge in two weeks! We're very keen to work with the winner! I loved the colours in this Colour Challenge and apparently, so did you. Our gallery was resplendent with deep purples, bright greens, silvers and lots of clean whites. It reminded me of blackberry picking in the wilds of the West Coast of BC. And choosing winners was like trying to pick the most luscious berries from the basket - an impossible job, but we had to do it! So the winners are:

Our Top Pick is: Stef Perry

There are so many details to notice in this eye-catching design from Stef Perry! The background has a detailed paper-pierced design created with a die. She has done painstaking copic work on the foliage and berries then die cut and mounted them. But the piece-de-resistance is the holographic silver lettering built up with white cardstock and mounted on the Blackberry Bliss shadow backing! So impressive!

Our Featured Artist is: Janet at Tiny Paper Blossom

Janet has a fabulous watercolour technique as she tackled this beautiful stamped image. The background is spectacular using grays and a technique called watercolouring through a stencil. The sentiment is embossed silver on the Blackberry Bliss cardstock! (Note that the lilac under the card is an envelope, not part of the card.) The Design Team was very impressed with the whole project and are delighted to be able to work with Janet as our Guest Designer on our upcoming Recipe Challenge in 2 weeks! Congratulations, Janet, and we will be in touch with you with the details.
