Our Top Pick is: Joanne James
Joanne's cross-stitched based card features a vintage stamp set that we think would be right at home in today's stamping catalogues! Her sweet CAS design also features a die cut needle that looks real (fooled us) and an adorable mini-embroidery hoop! We love how the baker's twine matches the stitches in the image!
And our Featured Artist is: Julie Gearinger
Julie's rich design reminded us all of the magic to be created with a heat gun and embossing powder - one of Julie's first papercraft tool purchases! Her skills have really been developed to amazing levels since her start, as her embossing involved masking and restamping. Julie's gorgeous roses are coloured vividly and contrast so well with the moody, smoky stenciled background! Beautiful!
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new sketch challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
