July Winner, Top 3 & DTSM

 Hello everybody! Here are our July Winners.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

The July winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is

Congratulations, you voucher code & badge will be emailed to you very soon

Hello everyone! It's Monika here.

 It seemed that you liked my theme - Use a stencil (or two) - because many of you joined our July challenge. So thank you for that!

Top 3

1. Ann Chuang

Ann made an interesting background with a stencil and the iron-off resist technique. I have never tried this technique but after seeing Ann's card and watching some videos, now I really want to try it! I also love the colours and the design.

98 Katarina Buffon

In my family the Monty Python is very popular. I like them but my hubby and my daughter love their humour. So when I saw Katarina's Lumberjack's card that made me smile. And the two stencilled background with the wood pile and the steam cogs are great too.

100. A Pink

This card is just awesome! The Squeezed Lemonade and the new Prize Ribbon colours look fantastic together and I love the reversed stencilling technique. If you see Amanda's design with Tim Holtz's new stamp set, the Inquistive, I'm sure you want to buy it :-)

Special Mention

92. Donna W

And the special mention goes to Donna who made a fabulous summery card! She created a beautiful flamingo with two layers of stencil. The additional gloss spray and the sequins made this card more beautiful

Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride and don't forget to join us in our September  Challenge xx

Everything purple

 Hello it's Jane back today with some more monochromatic inspiration for our current challenge. For my 2nd make I went with another colour I rarely use; purple. Having got out my underused purple inks I think I might change my mind in the future and use it more. 

Sometimes it is good to create out of your colour comfort zone. If you would like to see how my card came together I have a full step by step over on my blog here; There is a warm purple welcome waiting over there for  you. Enjoy the rest of August.

Bye for now,
