Challenge 16: Monochromatic

It seems that the summer is here! and with it comes lots of crafting indoors as it is too hot to be outside without being burnt to a crisp! We had some amazing entries in the Words are all you need challenge, and I can tell you, it took all night to choose a top 3 from the wonderful creations you all made. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and am so glad you are enjoying the challenge as much as you are!

The winner of challenge 15: Words are all you need is........

Congratulations  Gwen……… I will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.

Speaking of prizes, there’s been a couple of changes (ooohh!)  
There’s still the fabulous Winner’s prize of your choice of IndigoBlu stamps.  As always, you have 3 options to choose from:

1:   2 Large stamp plates

2:   4 Small stamp plates
3:   1 Large and 2 small plates

There’s also the Winner’s Badge, and one for the Top 3, to display proudly on your Blog,  and …….

From this challenge onwards the WINNER of the challenge will also be invited to do a GUEST SPOT on a future Challenge Launch post.  That’s right you’re work will be on the blog along with the Design Team.
Also the top three each month (chosen by the DT) will all be invited to do an inspiration piece to be included on the new reminder post, that now 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!

You’ll find all the information on how to enter the challenge,  the rules (don’t worry, there’s not that many), and meet the Design Team in the tabs above.

This month’s Top 3, for Words Are all You Need, chosen  by the DT, are ……

  10. Congrats to the winners. Beautiful artwork. Already started in monochrome design. Hope to be at least as successfully as I was this time :)

  11. Quick "rules" check - can we use a stamp from elsewhere in a minor "supporting role" (eg a sentiment) as long as the main focus is Indigo Blu?

  12. OK, ta - I'll keep thinking!
