August Challenge

A very good day to you and a warm welcome to our new challenge for August.

We've chosen a bright colour scheme this month to make your feel summery and the optional theme is: In the Garden. You can interpret it any way you want - think of anything you might find in the garden - flowers, plants, bugs, a bird table, a deck chair, your pet, a child's playset... use your imagination.

Our colours for August are:

Please take a quick look at the rules below before you create. 

  • We'll draw an overall WINNER at random who receives an an amazing grab bag of unmounted Rubber Dance stamps worth 25 Euro (at least!)
  • The Design Team will choose our favourite entry - the DT Pick of the Month. No prize other than fame and glory ;-).
  • All entries using Rubber Dance stamps will get a special mention and our fave out of those will be our Honourable Mention for the month.

Our winners can grab 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!

Need some inspiration? Check out these examples! We have of course used stamps from Rubber Dance, which you can find on our website:
