Industrial Winner and Top Picks

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce our winner and top picks from last month's Industrial challenge.  What a great selection of entries - so many fantastic projects for us to visit and enjoy.  Just a quick reminder, though - do remember you need to include a link back to us here (not just a mention) in order to qualify for the prize draw.  Do get in touch if you're not sure how - I'm sure one of us will be able to help out.  But thank you to all of you for joining in with our birthday challenge and for your kind birthday wishes too.

But now, without further ado, here is our winner of the prize voucher, as picked by Mr Random Generator...

That's Sharon at From My Craft Desk who created this brilliantly zingy industrial tag.

Congratulations, Sharon!  We'll be in touch very soon with your badge, prize voucher and an invitation to come and join us as a guest here at Country View Challenges.

And now on to our Top Three, and Debs really had her work cut out trying to choose her favourites, but here they are, in no particular order...

#28 Mo Stokes of almo craft

Debs said: I love all the rusty layers, and how the cogs give so much depth to the piece. What really stands out for me, is the pop of blue and green on the butterfly. Love it!

Debs said: I think this is fabulous, a true piece of engineering. I love the way the cogs all seem interlocking and the pipe leads my eye around the clock. Great background too.

#13 Donna of Inky and Quirky

Debs said: I think I was drawn to this one because of the rusty butterfly(a fav of mine) as I love the rich colour, which fades out slightly on the tips. I also love the crackle background. 

And finally for the Design Team Member's Special Mention...

A really charming take on the theme - the textures on this Industrial perambulator are fantastic.

Congratulations to all of you!  Badges will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you will display them with pride.  Thank you again to everyone who joined in.  We had a great time visiting all your Industrial creations, and we hope you'll come and play along in Monika's lovely Spring challenge.  Happy Crafting all!
