July Challenge Reminder - Summer Florals

Hi everyone,

It's the Indigoblu Challenge reminder time, our challenge this month is Summer Florals. We have some inspiration from a few of our Design team, and the Top 3 from last month's challenge, who agreed to be Guest Designer's for today! I hope you can stop by their blogs and see how they made their pieces.
As always, we have fab prizes on offer, of Indigoblu stamps of your choice as follows:

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 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!

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.
So first up it's our winners from the Top 3 sharing their inspiration:
Here we have Ivy:
Ivy had this to say:

I would like to say that I was delighted to be picked as a top 3 winner and asked to do an inspiration piece on Summer Florals.
Ivy doesn't have a blog, but I'm sure you will agree this is a beautiful piece, please leave some love for her here on the IB blog if you have time, we will make sure she gets all comments relayed to her.

Next up it's Carole:

Carole had this to say:

I was delighted to have been chosen as one of the top three in the last challenge and have enjoyed doing this piece for Summer Florals.

And third we have the lovely Jane:
Jane said:
I love the summer and wanted to create a really bright project for the summer florals theme so the cottage paints were ideal!  It was great fun creating the mixed media background and the Floral Fantasy stamp set was perfect for the main features.

You can see how Jane made this over on her blog here

And now our lovely DT member's inspiration:

I think you'll agree they have all done a fantastic job!  I hope this has inspired you to join in, you can enter the Challenge HERE, or check out the main post, we'd love to see your work!

Best Wishes,

The Indigoblu Challenge DT
