3 options to choose from:

There’s also the Winner’s Badge, and one for the Top 3, to display proudly on your blog, and the WINNER of the challenge will also be invited to do a GUEST SPOT on a future Challenge Launch post. That’s right, your work will be on the Challenge Blog alongside the Design Team!
Also the Top Three each month (chosen by our lovely DT) will all be invited to do an inspiration piece to be included on the reminder post that goes live mid challenge. So, if you’d like a chance to be featured on the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog get those stamps out and get creating!

Our winner from the last challenge, Mariette is our Guest Designer this month, and has made this beautiful card for us on this month's challenge theme ' All things Bright & Beautiful'.
I have used distress inks for the bright part and for the beautiful part of this challenge I used all of the IndigoBlu stamps I chose for my winning prize. You can see more over on my blog.
Next it's our brilliant DT's inspiration for the new challenge, you can't fail to be inspired by this bunch :) They also happen to be some of the nicest people too, and we are very proud to have them as a team. Hop across to their blogs and leave them some love if you have time.
Wow! I think you will agree these are all stunning, and what inspiration! Don't forget you can hop over to our team's blog's to see how they made these too, just click on their names above the pictures.

The 6" square canvas board was painted with Black Gee-Sso-Good, then small
squares of the new papers were adhered on top with Slap-It-On-Matt, Extra Thick
Slap-It-On was applied through the rose stencil.This was then left to dry.
Texture elements- buttons, mesh, hot glue dots, chip board
shapes were then applied using the Slap-It-On to the centre area of the board.When dry these were then painted with Black
Gee-Sso-Good and left to dry.A small
amount of Black Gee-Sso-Good was mixed with Slap-It-On Gloss and this was used as
a wash over the whole board and to soften the margin of the black painted area
and left to dry.
Out came the Luscious! Coral, purple and teal powders were
dusted over the board and missed with water to set.Jewel and the sentiments where stamped in
black ink and heat embossed in clear powder, these were coloured with gold
Paper roses were painted black and coloured with the purple
and teal and foliage with gold Luscious powders.These were attached to the board and silver
Luscious mixed with water and applied to highlight raised areas before Jewel
and the sentiments were adhered.
ofFlitterGlu were added around Jewel
and Unicorn Sparkles applied, magical!
I really had fun making this board and hope you have enjoyed
I wanted to change my Extra Thick Slap It On from clear to silver so I mixed it with some yummy Silver Luscious powder. It's brilliant as you can now make your very own different coloured texture paste's. If like me you make to much then why not put the excess into an empty Mega-Flake pot ready for next time, as this is what I have done.
Randomly place the Stars Stencil and the made up Silver Slap It On over the canvas. Just look at that Luscious Powder! I really can't stop using them along with the Stars Stencil, they definitely never seem to be off my table at the moment.
