CAS Watercolour January's Top Picks

January's Winter challenge was a great success with many
amazing entries.
Thanks to all that played along with us!

For the first time, we have a tie for Top Pick.  The Design Team voted, and I (Susan) as Challenge Host was asked to choose from those tied for Top Pick, and I went back and forth and finally decided I could not choose and it would have to be tie!

In order of entry, our tied Top Picks are:

Our Top Picks for January
Birgit

Birgit's card really says "winter" to me.  I can feel the chill in the air and I love the drifting snowflakes.   There is a real sense evening drawing in, and the promise of warmth in the distant cabin with the smoke rising from the chimney.

Ros captured the essence of a cold winter night with her pale white moon lighting the scene, streaks of grey and dark blue in the sky, falling snow, dark trees, and a tentative fox come out to survey the scene.

Congratulations, Birgit and Ros!
