Spotlights and Winner for the Make Your Own Background Challenge



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

#48 Karen Dunbrook – Emma says: Karen has created an amazing background on this card and I adore the effect she achieved, it’s just fabulous and the overall effect is really striking!

#91 Julien Jiang – Andrea says: I was so impressed at how Infusions colored stain was used to create this subtle, yet striking, background. The color combination was unique and original and I thought the combination of sophistication and whimsy was perfect!

#185 Susan Janicula – Macarena says: This tag has stolen my heart. I love so much the warm browns below the transparent embossed stripes. Susan mixed the Infusions with Distress Oxide absolutely perfectly. Amazing effect! Great job, Susan!

#266 Katrina – Anna-Karin says: Katrina made such a wonderful background on this card, and I really like her idea of trying to depict travelling from darkness to brightness. It is so original and clever. The city scape and hot air balloon are awesome too.

#322 Deb Riddell – Meihsia says: This is such a gorgeous tag with so many fabulous embellishments and details. I love Deb’s great step photos and the whole design of the tag is fantastic!
