June Winner, Top Three & DTMSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the June winners of our Challenge Winner, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!


First of all, the winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...
Number #13 - that's Jennifer Scull of Just Coffee Please... & Stamps, & Ribbons, & Paper with this fabulous altered bottle
Congratulations, Jennifer!  Your winner's badge and voucher will be on their way to you shortly, and we hope you'll join us a Guest Designer here at Country View Challenges in the future.

Now it's time for Evelyn to share her top picks with you.  As always you made it very difficult to choose from so many amazing entries, but here they are in no particular order.

Evelyn said: A very artsy piece with beautiful colours and embellishing! I loved the two different ways of crackles, great take of the challenge.


Evelyn said: gorgeous makeover of an old crate, it´s now a real treasure! The crackles, peeking through the layered napkin on the panels are gorgeous.

Evelyn said: This tag is one of even three entries from Sara Emily, all three caught my  attention. This one is really delicious in colors and embellishing, the sparely use of crackle matches perfect. Oh, and I love the tiny pearls!


And now for the Design Team Member's Special Mention, Evelyn has chosen.

Evelyn said: Alice used crackle medium for the very first time on this piece! I remember my first time of using crackle medium and how exciting it was. Alice, your premiere is very nicely done, please go on using crackles!


Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.
