Color Challenge Finalists for February

Polka Dot Creations Color Challenge Finalists

Another month gone by, another Color Challenge over! While ROSE has never traditionally been my favorite color, it seems plenty of you were inspired by the pinky theme. There were more than 200 entries to choose from this time around, and somehow I managed to pick nine.

Allow me to introduce you to the finalists, before I reveal the winner:

  1. Lost Lily Earrings, by blockpartypress
  2. Nellie LaFleur, by qdpatooties
  3. Mini bottle cap felted pincushion, by breezily
  4. Shira’s Baby Quilt, by sharon rotem
  5. triplepink0807, by libzoid
  6. felt & fimo hearts, by pixcat
  7. my Sugar Flowers …, by hagitsh
  8. CHARLOTTE Kids’ Tote – Hippie Buses, by isew
  9. Polymerclay Necklace, by efiwarsh

I encourage you to take a closer look at these photos and at the rest of the ones in the pool! Leave your comments on the photos over at flickr and let the artists know what you think – it’s always gratifying to hear that something you made has gotten a positive reaction from another creative type.

If you are one of these finalists and would like to elaborate here on what was involved in creating your entry, be my guest – the comments section is yours icon_smile-flickr-26

And now, I turn to the trusty random number generator (aka Eamonn, who hasn’t looked at any of the images) to select a winner:

Drumroll please…

And the winner is… #8!

Congratulations, Ginny of iSew, with your great Hippie Bus tote! I realize it’s for kids, but I could totally see stuffing a towel and a book in there and taking it to the beach for a peaceful afternoon of sun and surf. (sigh Is winter over yet??) I will be emailing you shortly with information about your $25 gift certificate.

Everyone else, get ready for March. We’ll be focusing on KELLY GREEN this month. Think shamrocks and leprechauns. I look forward to seeing what great things you come up with. Thanks, as always, for your participation!

  5. Wow! I feel extra special! I can’t believe I won. Thanks so much for including me. I always have so much fun trying to come up with things to add to the group. That hippie bus fabric was one of my favorites! Wish I’d saved some for myself.
