April Challenge Winners

Hi, friends, it’s Chark today with our monthly challenge winner announcement, so exciting! First, thank you to all who entered our April Watercoloring Challenge, we saw tons of beautiful entries and that made the judging tricky for the team.

The winner for April is Maura with this lovely card…the colors are lovely together, the painting is gorgeous and the splatters and sequins just make the perfect touches. We loved this one, Maura! Please contact us for your $25 gift code to the store at a2zscrapbooking@comcast.net


Our three runners-up for April are these fabulous card makers below. Please contact us at a2zscrapbooking@comcast.net to get your blog buttons.

This card is from Helen G and is just so sigh-worthy. The pink and gold are classically lovely together and the design of this one is perfect to showcase the watercolored flower. Beautiful, Helen!


Our next runner-up is Tammy, who used the cutest little Hero Arts owls as a focal point on her gorgeous watercolored sky. I loved that the owls are painted to match but still stand out. The black and white elements of the card really draw the focus to the beautiful colors and made this a team favorite. Nicely done, Tammy, it’s wonderful!



Our last runner-up for the April Watercolor Challenge is Betty, who took a soft approach to her project. This flower looks stunning embossed and painted on vellum. Leaving the leaves white, along with the white card and white sequins make the eye immediately go to the flower. Beautiful in concept and execution, it won a lot of fans on the team. Lovely work, Betty!


Thanks to all who entered…turns out watercoloring is a favorite technique of our crafty friends. And every entry was beautifully done, so you must be practicing a great deal, or maybe you’re just naturally a painter. Either way, it made for some beautiful eye candy for everyone!

Don’t forget to enter May’s CAS Challenge here this month. Break out those Hero Arts stamps, stencils, dies and digis and think Clean and Simple. You might just win bragging rights and a blog button or even $25 to spend at the a2z store and that is a whole lotta fun!

Happy Weekend!
