Winners of Challenge #279 - Sunset Symphony

We're excited to announce the winners of Challenge #279 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! Our entries were few but they certainly did the colour challenge justice!

Here are our winners:

Our Top Pick is: Jolanda Johnstone

Jolanda not only used our colours in a unique way, but she went out of her way to add a lot of interesting texture to her project as well. Check out the tire tread marks and the tires themselves to see what I mean. Then there's the playful background and the pennants! When you add in the appropriate lovely sentiment, the whole creation was one of the favourites of the Design Team!

As Featured Artist this week, Mary will also be invited to be our next Guest Designer! We loved that she used ink blending to turn the Challenge colours into a tropical sunset, with the images used in silhouette overtop. And we loved how the circular frame was created, stamped on Basic White, then die cut so some of the images were outside the margin, mounting the inside circle flat and popping the outside panel up on dimensionals. What a great way to create focus! Mary's ink blending with our colours is impeccable and use of the lighter colours in the card layers works wonders! 

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