December Colour Challenge - Bright & Bold

Welcome to the Rubber Dance Monthly Art Stamping Challenge!

Our challenge is all about colour! Each month we bring you a gorgeous colour scheme to kick-start your muse. 

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 December our colours are bright and fresh blues, purples and pinks
In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEME:
BIRTHDAYS (if you want to)
(for example, use a birthday themed stamp, make a birthday gift, create some pretty packaging)

There's a very special reason for our theme this month, as December is Bibi's birthday month (Bibi owns and runs Rubber Dance). So we decided to dedicate this challenge to all those folks whose winter Birthday is overshadowed by Christmas celebrations and put them in the spotlight!

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 from our fabulous Design Team! They have used our new birthday stamps which you can find on our brand new website:
