Winner and Top 5 - Challenge 23


For our current challenge "Floral" please click here.

********

We had a varied selection of entries into last months "Wings and Things" challenge. You've certainly put a lot of thought into your artwork and it's great to see how versatile you've found Clarity Stamps.

The new challenge design team have enjoyed viewing, commenting and reading how your projects have been put together, making their decision a very difficult one.

Hello to the newbies to the challenge this month. It's great to see the wide variety of different styles and techniques from person to person and the way in which you all grow in confidence from month to month. It's worth looking back on your older artwork to see just how far you've actually come.

********

Our winner is chosen at random to give everyone a chance regardless of their ability, standard and how long they've been crafting etc. We thought this was the fairest way all around. So...

With the help of Random.org


The winner is:

#35 Debbie Rock

Congratulations Debbie!

  5. Congratulations Debbie and also to the Top 5. It was an extremely difficult task to select only five from so many exciting and artistic examples. A big thank you to everyone who entered Challenge 23 and made our selection so challenging.
    Looking forward to viewing your future exhibits! The theme for Challenge 24 is 'Floral.'

  6. Thank you for all your good wishes ... such a surprise and so totally not worthy of winning as there were so many better entries than mine. All this challenge malarky was quite new to me and I only entered after much - VERY much persuasion from a couple of my crafty friends ... Margaret Craner, whom I am DELIGHTED to see got Top Five ... and Fi Scott who was just so supportive and encouraged me to take part. I wonder if the winner should not be picked from the Top Five though ... seems quite unfair I should win over those very wonderful entries. I am absolutely chuffed to bits though and this has given me such a boost as I was ready to bin all my canvasses and was even considering giving up crafting altogether! Love to everyone and thanks for all the support. xXx
