Winners for Challenge #286 - Boo!

We hope you had fun celebrating  or not celebrating Halloween! And we hope you managed to avoid whatever scares you the most about it (and according to our entries - spiders win the prize for the scariest thing about Halloween!) We thoroughly enjoyed reading your entries and looking at your creations! There's just something engaging about the colours of Halloween!

Without further ado, I want to introduce you to our winners! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Tenia Nelson

top pick

Tenia's winsome little ghost takes on a spooky air with that watery purple hue it has taken on to blend with the background! And that awesome sentiment is so perfect! Tenia always has an innate sense of what elements to add to enhance her designs with texture and surprise and never overdoes it! This design is balanced just right!

Our Featured Artist is: Jolanda Johnstone

Using a stand-out palette of black, white, orange and purple, Jolanda created a tribute to the number one fear of our very informal poll of the scariest things about Halloween - spiders! She made great use of embossing, on the spiders, threads, and bold sentiment, glitter from Wink of Stella, on the web itself and the sentiment and unique elements - check out the threads the spiders are hanging from! So cool! Put those all together with a great layout and you have a card worthy of Featured Artist! Congratulations, Jolanda.
