The winner of our February Challenge is…. Olga Podobaeva (@olikka_m)!

screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-6-39-28-amOlga’s carefully composition Wild Peonies are so beautifully abstract and gorgeous.  The bright coloring of her peonies and foliage against the heat embossed elements were just perfect for last month’s Love Challenge.

We wanted to showcase three additional projects that especially stood out to us:



Irina’s multi heat embossed Loose Peonies against her soft blended background were so eye catching!
