Thank you so much to all of you who entered our color challenge earlier in the month. It was a beautiful display of work!  Here are our top picks:

We loved Deepti's hand-drawn vase and twigs, her beautiful use of the colors, her original use of the washi tape, and her creative design!

We love Cathy's coloring and design and those butterflies are fabulous!

Sarah's use of patterned paper is great and we really like her framed sentiment and layered butterflies!

Challenge 48 - Picture Inkspiration

This week we have a picture inspiration for you: 

The picture is The Firebird by Edmund Dulac who was famous for illustrating fairy tales. You can find out more about him and his work here and here

Feel free to pick out any elements eg the trees, the starry sky, the buildings in the background….or even just the fairytale theme. However, if it’s not obvious, do please mention how the picture has inspired you.

We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer. 

Here's what the design team did:

We have narrowed down the entries from our previous Anything Goes challenge and have come up with these wonderful Top Picks!

We loved Simone's use of feathers and stitching. Her unique, bold flower is just stunning!

We like the girl image that Gerrina incorporated and the functional windows are great! This is such a unique card!
