Here are the designers' favourites  for TEW Challenge #(title):

# 2 Amy Y.






Unky says: What a wonderful halloween card with spider web embossing! Love the details and sentiment. especially the poison bottle. Love how you added virtual embossing with colouring! Love it!








Kay Says: I like this card by Red Obsession Cards for the lovely textures done in a very interesting technique and for the lovely colouring.








Leigh says:  My pick is #14 Chris....this is a very striking card from the textures to the colour palette and the play of soft against hard. The beautiful angel with her wings breaking the circle is so soft & ethereal against the hardness of the metallic embossed background layers.









# 8 Teresa






Bonnie says: The colour palette with the gorgeous build up of layers of ink is so striking. I especially love the way Teresa has cleverly used two different embossing patterns to create the sky and the sea. A beautiful tag with lovely colouring!
