Title Chosen: ” Lala Loops- a sew magical Christmas special” by commenter @sarah_elle_designs

My thoughts : This piece is cute, cheery and initially looks simple, but then you start noticing all the little details that make it a winner. Look at those buttons! I think it would make a gorgeous coloring page- did I mention how beautifully it’s colored in?

3rd place- 3129 likes 

Winner: @lichingheng

Title Chosen: ” Dance of the Northern Lights” by commenter @srivsank

My thoughts : This is just plain incredible. Some great watercolor techniques (with a very cool masking fluid tree) and I love how the artist makes it seem so effortlessly easy- I’m 100% sure it’s not as easy as she makes it look. Brilliant work and the depth of the painting gets the magic of the wintry scene just right.
