We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Winner Post

Oh dear, this job gets harder and harder.  How to choose a winner and a runner up is so difficult when the standard of entries is so high.

We decided that we should really pick one from each category so the Winner is ...

...

...

wait for it ...

Rosie with her beautiful piece of artwork using alcohol inks.


The stunning colours just got to us - it looked almost like encaustic art - it is so vibrant and we cannot imagine how wonderful it must look in real life.

Our runner up is

Heather with her clever wiring techniques on her handmade charms


But ...

This was such a close event so Cindy, come out and take a bow for your lovely pieces and grab yourself a runner up button as well.


If the two runners up will contact Neet (addie on the right hand side of her blog) for their button to be sent to them and if Rosie will contact her for the details of how to claim the £10 gift from our sponsors, Oyster Stamps,  and her button, we can safely say that is another month of successful blog challenges for Artful Times.  Thanks to all of you who entered - you are all winners really.
