June Challenge Winner and Highlights

Howdy, mixed media card artists! It's time to announce the winner and highlights of the June Challenge.

Here's the mixed media card that the design team voted as the winner:

Congratulations, Carol! Please grab your winner badge below to display proudly on your blog.

And now here are the highlights. The girls in the design team picked an entry to highlight. It's the entry that uniquely impacted us in some way -- a specific technique that was used, the colors, the creativity, or something in it that touched or impacted us.

Loll's highlight: #3 Lee-Anne
Loll says, "Love the layers of strips of paper and stenciling to create a textured background.  The metal embellishments pop off the soft, dreamy colours of the background."

Jenny's and Shirley's highlight: #16 Lula
Jenny says, "I love the techniques used by Lulu to create a gorgeous shimmery background and the collage pattern on the man silhouette."
Shirley says, "Lula created a wonderful grunge background with shimmer and texture which complements the colourful silhouette. The sentiment circle is perfectly placed to balance the design."

Char's and Kripa's highlight: #18 Sara
Char says, "This piece is a beautiful Mixed Media showcase!"
Kripa says, "Such an interesting array of textures and techniques used. So much dimension , just mind blowing. One of those cards I wish could see and touch in person."

Jan's highlight: #19 Carol Dunham
Jan says, "Wonderful card designed with monoprint pieces and left over bits."

Deepti's highlight: #21 Vivela Vi
Deepti says, "I love the bold red flowers paired with gorgeous details on her card :)"

Julia's highlight: #25 Sara
Julia says, "Lovely stenciled brick background with a beautiful layered frame and delicious flowers!"

Lyndal's highlight: #27 Kylie
Lyndal says, "Love that Kylie stepped outside her comfort zone and created such a gorgeous tonal collage card!"
