Winners of Challenge #273 - They Call It The Blues

We're keen to announce the winners of Challenge #273 because the Featured Artist will be our Guest Designer for the next Recipe Challenge in two weeks! We're very excited to work with the winner! We were definitely not singing the blues about the entries we received for our monochromatic palette for this challenge. They were "blue"tiful!

After deliberations we were "azure" about our winners and here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Lisa K.

Lisa's beautiful floral image is stunning, stamped in Versamark and Navy ink and clear embossed, then masterfully coloured in using the challenge blues with just the right touch, giving an airy lightness to the bouquet and a luminous quality as well! Lisa, you made the blues glow!

Our Featured Artist is: Shirley Gentry

Shirley created her own background paper that she calls SSP (Shirley's Special Paper) using the challenge colours and white. It has just the right feel for this jaunty, adventurous little card. The Design Team loved the look of the 3D sails and how the little sailboat seems to come alive, sailing right off the card front in nautical navy! 

Congratulations, Shirley, you will be our next Guest Designer for our Recipe Challenge in 2 weeks time. We will be in touch!
