Halloween Merrymaking by Diane ArkinsWitches Ball Matchbox by Nancy Yankowski is a miniature marvel of design. The Halloween theme comes across strongly, with the vintage figures and text. Several different textured embellishments come together on this tiny treasure. Nancy will receive a copy of Diane Arkins’ wonderful book, Halloween Merrymaking: An Illustrated Celebration of Fun, Food, and Frolics from Halloweens Pastgenerously provided by Pelican Publishing CompanyThe winning artwork will also be displayed on the Vintage Image Craft Home Page for one month!


Moments in Time rubber stamps by Roni JohnsonAll Halloween by Virginia Chapman is a bold and witty greeting card displaying several collage techniques. The distressing is expertly done, while the brads and stitching add shabby charm to the cover. Embossing the stamped images adds a spooky shimmer to the spider-webs and inside images. Virginia will receive the new vintage rubber stamp suite, Moments In Time by Roni Johnson. This beautiful unmounted laser-etched stamp set is part of the Ink Stained Roni line offered by Queen Kat Designs Stamp Company. 


Christmas Children collage sheetHalloween Treats Bucket by Cindy Pointe features detailed artistic work, including silhouette images, collaged textures and hand-written text. The colors, shapes and embellishments on this craft are delightful. Cindy will receive a Vintage Image Craft Image Book download.

The judges, Roni Johnson, Justine Frederick, Berta Feige, Scott Henderson and Martin Bray want to thank all of the artists who submitted their work for this August 2010 Creative Challenge. Each piece celebrated the magical theme of "Witch Crafts." Thank you for sharing your imagination with all of us.
