Watercolour Wonders Pinworthies

 Hello everyone, Deb here to announce our Pinworthy winners for July's Watercolour Wonders challenge.  As usual we had many fabulous entries and we want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to enter our challenge.  But we had to narrow it down to our three favourites so without further ado here are our choices.

#8 - Cassandra

We loved Cassandra's use of the vintage elements in her background along with her lovely watercoloured flowers and textural elements.

# 15 - Tracey

Tracey's faux ceramic tiles are amazing!  We loved the dimension and texture combined with the gouache, background stamping and triple embossing, simply lovely.

#20 - Christine

And what's not to love about Christine's lovely Christmas In July card.  The soft watercolour washed sky in the background combined with that wonderful watercolour pencil stamped bird made for a delightful wintery scene.

Thanks again to everyone who joined in our July Watercolour Wonders challenge and we hope that you will also be able to join us for our current challenge, Tag Your It!  Can't wait to see what you create,

Deb and the Creative Guides
