April Challenge - Spring is in the Air

Hi everyone,

The Indigoblu challenge is here again, this month our theme is 'Spring is in the Air'.  We'd like to see anything Spring like, colours, stamps, paints etc, as long as you use Indigoblu stamps in your work.

We also have on offer a fabulous prize of Indigoblu stamps of your choice as follows:

As always, you have 3 options to choose from:

1:   2 Large stamp plates (A5)
2:   4 Small stamp plates (A6)
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 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 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 get to meet the Design Team in the tabs on the sidebar.

Our random winner of the March challenge, 'Yellow, pink & green', is:    

Congratulations Jannet, we will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.  Our Top 3, who get a Guest Designer spot, as picked by the DT are:

1.  Mac Nature
2.  Sue Ralph
3.  IsleofCrafty

Congratulations all, we will be in touch shortly.

Our winner from last month, Mo, has joined us as Guest Designer this month and created this beautiful piece for us:

Mo had this to say:
I was very excited to have been asked by Nikki over at Indigoblu to complete a Guest design piece as inspiration for their new challenge theme "Spring is in the Air".  As a child my brother and I took part in the annual May Queen festival and I remember we always had our photo taken in front of the Lilac tree in the garden as it was in full bloom in May. For me this theme was great as this gave me a chance to play with yet more new goodies in my collection the Floral Fantasy stamp and 12 x 12 papers, both of which include a lovely lilac branch in the design. For more details please visit my blog

Wow! What a gorgeous piece by Mo, and here are our inspirational DT for you:
