November Challenge Winner, Top 3 & DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the November Challenge Winner.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  So here is the winner of our Challenge and Craftyfield's Top Three & DTSM .  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!
November Hand Stamped winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is..

Last month, we had a fabulous collection of entries for our Hand Stamped challenge, showing that stamping is alive and well and holding its own against digital crafting!

Craftyfield had a hard time selecting the top three but here are her choices, in no particular order:

Craftyfield said: I love the subtle colour scheme and shabby chic feel of Lynne's card and the bird and berries are well coloured. The added snow add that finishing touch to make it pop!

Craftyfield said: One of the reason I love stamps so much is the infinite possibilities when you start combining them. Avril has done just that and created a whole landscape, which looks both nostalgic and realistic.

Craftyfield said: although traditional black stamping is the go to technique, personally I love stamping in colour...  look no lines! And no need to painstakingly colour with pens either… Kanda's card is a good illustration of this technique and I love her CAS design.

Special mention:

Craftyfield said: Viv also combined several stamps to create this image and added her own details with pen. I love the watercolour background and the stamping with Distress inks with a spritz of water is the perfect technique for a snowy day.

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