November Colour Challenge - Classic Christmas


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 November our colours are very classic Christmas - red, green and gold
In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEME:
INCLUDE SOME STENCILING (if you want to)
(if you don't have a stencil make one from punched shapes or die cuts or use something like sequin waste)

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.

In addition to the stamp grabbag prize, Olga from our Design Team has made this beautiful card for the winner! Included in this special prize are five of Olga's crochet snowflakes. How sweet is that?

Your entery doesn't have to be a card ... Here's a fun painting by Gabriele, called "What if this was real?". She has used our maple seed stamps to look like tiny butterflies, or perhaps fireflies. Notice one of our rock carving boat stamps inside the golden egg:

    4. I am so sorry I have managed to enter twice! I have created a card using the colours in the challenge but not a Christmas card - hope that it is allowed. Thank you for a great challenge and gorgeous inspirations. If my card is not allowed please delete it and I will try to get back with another entry and the next one will be for Christmas Karen x

      1. Hi Karen! I have removed one of your entries so your rooster card shows only once in the thumbnails, no problem :) Your card is fine - it doesn't have to be a Christmas card as long as the main colours are that of our colour scheme, and that rooster has it all :) Thank you!
