PBSC February - Anything Goes...Optional 'Hearts and/or Flowers'...More Inspiration!

 Happy Saturday Everyone!

We're back with some more inspiration for our current challenge, and the announcement of the DT favourites from last month's challenge!


*******

Here are the DTs favourite projects from January's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Something New') challenge:


Helen B's favourite: #43 - Ellie
Helen says: I love the subtle inked clouds behind the adorable critter on Ellie's card - who could resist him!?


Helen F's favourite: # 32 - Leslie Miller
Helen says: I love the wonderful colouring to bring these stunning flowers to life against the simple background.



Jenny's favourite:#27 - Fabiola
Jenny says: I adore the way Fabiola has coloured 'Mo' and the snowy scene on kraft card.


Lorraine's favourite: #22 - Bonnie
Lorraine says: This is just gorgeous. I love the way Bonnie has used markers on the stamps and then used a damp waterbrush to produce a stunning coloured image.

Congratulations ladies - please grab our 'PBSC Favourite' badge for your blog!
