January Colour Challenge - Frosty Blues


Welcome to the Rubber Dance Monthly Art Stamping Challenge!

Happy New Year! We're starting this brand new year with a brand new challenge with brand new colours and an optional theme 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 January our colours are silver and icy tones of blue
In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEME:
FROST/WINTER (if you want to)

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 the Winter Wonderland set, which you can find on our brand new website: www.rubberdance.com

    2. Ooh, these are all gorgeous pieces! I think the colour palette makes them all so elegant. I admire the use of photographs on some of them and I love the random stamping of the 'Let it snow' card. You've been very busy Bibi.
      Happy New Year to you; may it bring you good health, happiness and prosperity ((hugs)) xo
