Patriotic Creative Challenge
June 2010

Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue



Vintage Bingo Card ornament by BertaVintage Patriotic Bingo Card Ornament by Berta Feige delighted the judges with a strong thematic focus and creative yet professional execution. The patriotic embellishments include glass glitter and rhinestones, silver tinsel, and pleated crepe paper for a bunting-like ruffle at the bottom. We were quite torn between this ornament and Berta's  Rosette ornament, but this one just set off the fireworks! Berta will receive three free downloads of VintageImageCraft.com Image Books, and her artwork will be displayed on the Home Page for one month!


Miss Patriotic Crown by Kay TangnerMiss Patriotic Crown by Kay Tangner really popped for the judges because of Kay's wild setting for the front-and-center vintage image. She added unique touches with creative embellishments that made the image so dimensional, like sewn-on buttons, a beaded necklace, flags, tassels, and more. Kay made this one for her niece's birthday on July 4!  Kay will receive two free downloads of VintageImageCraft.com Image Books.


Hip Hip Hooray Soaps by Cindy AdkinsHip-Hip-Hooray Soaps by Cindy Adkins are both decorative and practical. These little soaps boast antiqued vintage images, and embellishments like  buttons, flags, raffia and cheesecloth. The judges were  impressed by Cindy's attention to detail, front and back, as well as her artistic photo styling and setting.  Cindy will receive one free VintageImageCraft.com download.


Patriotic Kissing Ball by Margaret DiggsPatriotic Kissing Ball by Margaret Diggs was so distinctive, the judges chose to award it an Honorable Mention. This Victorian whimsy displays some meticulous work, from creating the ball to making the tea bag roses and the natural fiber embellishments. Wonderful work!

The judges, Roni Johnson, Justine Frederick, Scott Henderson and Martin Bray want to thank all of the artists who submitted their work for this June 2010 Patriotic Creative Challenge. Each piece was an impressive expression of artistic vision and accomplishment. Thank you for sharing the fruit of your hands and hearts.

VintageImageCraft is proud to present
