First of all, can I just say a big fat thank-you for being the most wonderful participants in this new challenge blog? I am still a one woman operation because I only estimated 20 entries for the entire month ( it's now close to 200 entries!!). So many of you have never tried water-coloring before, you sure took the plunge and make a huge splash with this new challenge! I am amazed at the wonderful entries that you had submitted!
Since this is a challenge blog, did I mention prizes? No, I think I forgot that little detail! Well, lucky for us, there will be sponsors offering a prize to the top winner. I will have Top 5 Fav selected and announced on the 25th every month. My daughter Stephanie who is an accomplished photographer/PhD student offered to help me with this difficult task--select Top 5 Favorites. The blog header and badge photos are Stephanie's work (see here). Stephanie has an excellent taste in designs and she does make cards ( when she has time) !
The Top 5 selection criteria will be based on:
1. Originality (30%)
2. Execution (30%)
3. Craftsmanship (20%)
4. Presentation (10%)
5. Wow factor (10%)
Among the Top 5 Fav, there will be a random draw for a lucky (and talented) winner who will then receive the top prize. I hope this selection process is fair and encouraging to all participants. Also, in order to qualify for the top prize, your project has to be NEW (not linking back to a previously made project). You are welcome to combine other challenges, please limit to your total number of challenges no more than 4.
