Catching Up on our Featured Artists - Challenges 196 and 197!

Yes, it's me again so soon after my last post! But I wanted to split things up a bit so none of our Featured Artists would get buried at the bottom of a looooong post. We really value those of you who check in with us on Wednesday mornings and participate in our sketch or color challenge. We especially like going to check them all out on your blogs or Split Coast pages or wherever you happen to park your samples. Just looking through all your OTHER projects really gets our creative juices flowing.

And speaking of creative juices, on to


Our Featured Artist for the Color Challenge # 196 is
Patti Corriere

This color challenge - Stampin' Up!'s Pear Pizzazz, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, and Concord Crush - was really a challenge! But Patti made the colors seem like they were made for each other. The Divas especially liked the complementary designs in the textured layer and the Stampin' Up! Patterns Paper that Patti used. And look at how well-centered she made the texture pattern in the Baja Breeze layer! This was definitely not an accident, and it's this kind of attention to detail that really caught our collective eye. Now, if I had made this basic card, I never would have thought to use the Pear Pizzazz ribbon to tie it all together. But now that I see how it works, it makes me think of the greens in our garden and how they just make the colors of the flowers pop. Great accent, Patti!

Our Featured Artist for the Sketch Challenge # 197 is
Lynn Hayes

Don't you think that Lynn just nailed this sketch challenge?! I never did buy this old Stampin' Up! set, Booglie Eyes; but now I sure do miss it. It's so durned stinkin' cute for Halloween! And Lynn picked some perfect colors to go with the stamped images as well as with the black gingham ribbon that she used to accent the card. The frayed ends to the ribbon really accent the torn and sponged edges and pull the whole card together wonderfully. Happy Boo to you, too, Lynn!

I'm off for a trip for the next couple of weeks, but I'll be posting our Featured Artists for Challenges #198 and #199 soon after I get back.

And don't forget this week's challenge! We got the link up a little late, but it's good for several more days!
