I don't have a problem with clipart, as long as it is part of the public domain or you have purchased it, but this particular contest called for watercolor. Maybe some of the designs just look more manipulated than they are if you look at a larger image? Some of them clearly are heavily altered in Photoshop. It was NOT easy to correct my gouache (opaque watercolor, which the good folks at SF okayed for the contest) for a perfect repeat in Photoshop. I also have no problem with that--I'm sure other watercolorists needed to retouch the edges of their pattern so it repeats nicely while keeping the bulk of the print as a handpainted watercolor.
