Winners for Challenge #291 - Paint Pour

We're excited to announce the winners of Challenge #291 because the Featured Artist will be our Guest Designer for the next Recipe Challenge in two weeks! We're very keen to work with the winner! Our entries certainly did the colour challenge justice! So beautiful and very hard to choose!

Here are our winners:

Our Top Pick is: Suzanne from Stamp n' Sip

Using the darkest colour as the background panel really allowed the collage of brighter coloured hearts to shine! The design was well balanced for colour and shape and the design team loved the addition of the darker coloured matte dots, which added some extra whimsy to Suzanne's delightful Valentine's display! It was a great way to present the challenge colours!

As Featured Artist this week, Jen will also be invited to be our next Guest Designer! We loved that she used a CAS format to really highlight the Challenge Colours in her design without them taking over. She did an amazing job stamping the dahlias with those layered stamps, and we loved the way she used the ombre glimmer paper to represent the red and pink colours! It was so effective. Die cutting the leaves in the delicate vellum made them look so elegant, and really helped maintain the clean look of the design! Just stunning, Jen!

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