Winners for Challenge #239 - Not My Jam

There was a lot of jam making going on at As You See It Challenge over the past two weeks, with our participants choosing the colours that they really did not feel the love for, that really were not their jam, so to speak, and using them to make sweet confections! Some definite themes emerged - purple grapes and orangey oranges were among the top unfavourites to jam with! But some other unexpected ones occurred as well! What was really amazing was how well you crafted with colours you don't like! Let's find out who the winners were:

Our Top Pick is: Christine Blain 

Christine is really averse to So Saffron as a colour, but when she paired it up with Basic Black and got it to pop, she was able to come up with a design she liked. Sometimes, it's all in the pairing, and not always just for wine!! The Design Team were really intrigued with the way Christine was able to get so much texture from her ink and that fabulous stamp works so well for emboss resist! Awesome card!

Our Featured Artist is: Gayle Chrvala

Gayle created this stunning Christmas card with masses of her least favourite colour, gray. With that quiet gray background, the intricate snowflakes and the bold sentiments, especially the one die cut in rid, just popped! It is reminiscent of a Scandinavian Christmas card! Very effective and eye-catching!
