Top Picks for CMCC#42!

Wow - thank to you those of you who played along this week. It was so great to see all the beautiful entries in the gallery.

It's time to check out this week's Captivator, as chosen by Joanne!


Yapha

Joanne's Pick:  I love the way Yapha has used markers to colour her stamp - the detail of the delicate image is captured beautifully. The Crisp Cantaloupe elements really 'pop' against the subtle blues of this card. Congratulations Yapha!

And our lovely featured designer for October...! 
Hello everyone! I'm Jen Mitchell and I live in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. I've been making cards for many years and I find the process of creating a card from nothing but some paper, ink and a vague idea to be a wonderful way to end a long day at work. I especially love using a color challenge as a way to spark my creative mojo so when I was asked to join the ladies at Colour Me...! for the month of October I didn't hesitate to say yes! I am looking forward to spending the next month creating alongside this talented group.
