Spotlights and Winner for the Background Challenge



We have four artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Make Your Own Background Challenge!

#73 MartyF – Emma says: I absolutely adore this card! The depth and dimension, together with the textures and patterns create such a feast for the eyes and I love how that handsome white moose looks so majestic prancing through the winter snow! Beautiful work…

#73 MartyF – Macarena agrees with Emma and says: This is one of the most beautiful Christmas cards I’ve seen this year. Love this brown/red/white mood cause it makes it so warm and cozy. I love the scene with the cutest moose ever, too. The sentiment rocks, lol. Great background, textures, layers, patterns, details. I just love everything about this card! Great job!

#87 Kakichka Kat – Meihsia says: This is such a gorgeous creation with so many beautiful details. I love the stunning mixed media collaged background, and all the embellishments on this piece are awesome!

#153 Cards by Maakie – Anna-Karin says: The Aurora Borealis background on this card is fantastic, it really glows. The die cut winter scene in the foreground is very calm and I like the mix of shades of brown and black and white.

#240 Time – Andrea says: I love the texture, vibrant colors, and wonderful sense of movement created in this background. I also really like the way that journaling was incorporated into the actual design itself. Very clever and beautiful!
