May Colour Challenge

Finally summer is on the way - warm days, flowers blooming, ice cream... We are celebrating here at Rubber Dance with bright summer colours for this month's challenge. These vibrant shades will make you feel like it's summer even if there's rain outside.

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!
  • NEW: After you have linked up your work, you can email Bibi (stamplist@gmail.comto get a discount code to use in the Rubber Dance Stamps webshop and get 20% off your entire order.

Our colours this month are bright and summery!
In addition to our colour scheme, our OPTIONAL THEME this month is: Flowers
(use the theme if you want to - it's optional but we think perfect for these colours!)

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:
