February Challenge - Loved Up

Welcome to the Rubber Dance Monthly Art Stamping Challenge!

Are you in the mood for love? We are! So this month's challenge is about Love (off all kinds - your love of cake or stamps counts!) with a non-traditional colour scheme. As always the the theme is optional so if Valentine's Day makes you want to hide in a cave - you can still play along with our colour palette.


Both our winner and Pick of the Month will get badges to proudly display on their blogs. Winners will be announced on our blog on the 7th of the following month, so remember to check back to see if you won! 

  • We'll draw an overall WINNER at random who receives an an amazing grab bag of unmounted Rubber Dance stamps worth 25 Euro! (that's over $30!)
  • The Design Team will choose our favourite entry - our DT Pick of the Month. 
  • Any entries using Rubber Dance stamps will get a special mention!

For February our colours are a little vintage with a hint of romantic red

In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEME: LOVE
(if you want to - this can be romantic love or platonic love, it could be love of a place, an activity or an object - anything you love goes!)

Please take a quick look at the rules below before you create. Don’t worry, there aren't many rules and they are not complicated.

Need some inspiration? Check out these examples! We have all used stamps from Rubber Dance, which you can find on our website: www.rubberdance.com - while you're there, check out our brand new HEART stamps! You'll find them under New Arrivals.
