ric#4 - Christopher Kane Resort 2012

Wow!  The design team was so impressed with the participation in our last challenge- we had 75 absolutely gorgeous entries.  That made it really tough for us to pick winners, but in the end, here's who we chose:

Our Fabulous Fashionistas are:
Lindsay A.

And the Queen of Couture, winner of the $15 Gift Card to Simon Says Stamp is:

Congrats, ladies!  Michelle, please email me (ourchangeofart@gmail.com) to claim your prize!

Now, if you are up on your fashion, you would know that Resort Collections for 2012 were shown months ago.   I will usually choose the most recent, fresh off of the runway designs for our challenges, but I couldn't pass this one up.  Rainbow never goes out of style :)

Here's how the DT was inspired, using some fabulous stamps from this week's sponsor, Clear and Simple Stamps- we got to play with the Lucky Charm set!

Angeline Yong - The Creation of Creativity

Cristina Kowalczyk - My Paper Secret

Laura Bassen - Doublestick Heaven

Jennifer Rzasa - Our Change of Art

Sarah Jay - Criminal Grace

The design team will select 3 runner-ups (the Fabulous Fashionistas) and one winner (the Queen of Couture) after the challenge closes. They will be posted here on the blog at the start of the next challenge, as well as on our Winners Page. The Queen of Couture will receive an awesome prize!

Hi, I just discovered your site, in the past I would see these challenge blogs or photo triggers and wonder what it was all about. BUT your site, especially the rainbow photo has gotten me completely inspired. Now I get it and I am HOOKED! Thank you for starting such a fantastic way to inspire people.
