February 2017 Challenge - Love is all you need

Good morning,

So.. things have changed slightly, you may have noticed a date change for the challenge, we are now launching on the 1st of the month, with our reminder post coming out on the 21st.  So technically, February is the first IndigoBlu challenge this year.  Our theme had to be valentine related of course, so we'd like to see you interpret 'Love is all you need'.  

To be in with a chance of winning a prize, you MUST include IndigoBlu stamps in your entry.  And it's one entry per person.  Other than that, you have free reign, and we'd love to see your makes, whether it's a card, or ATC, mixed media or clean and simple. 

First we have the important task of announcing the winner of Decembers challenge, Snow Snow Snow. 

Our winner each month gets the choice of stamps from IndigoBlu 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!

Our random winner is:

Congratulations Tracey, we will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.

And our Top 3 as chosen by the DT are:

1.  No 5, Inky Bliss Creations2.  No 10, Ana Sa3.  No 9, Craft Away

Congratulations all, we will contact you shortly to discuss a Guest spot!

So our winner of December's challenge, Sarah,  has waited very patiently to be our Guest Designer today, here is her piece and what she had to say:

 I used what is fast becoming my favourite IB stamp the 'Script!' Used horizontally on the background and then vertically on the mdf heart! It really is a good multi-tasking  stamp.
I feel rather nervous as although I've been crafting for years I am new to showing my work off, so hope it comes over ok! My other other half has treated me to one of those pop up light box studio's which has made a  fantastic difference to the quality of my photo skills, so fingers crossed!

I'm sure you'll agree Sarah has done a fantastic job for us, please pop to her blog and leave her some love too. 

Now it's our fab DT's turn, all returning for another year on the Challenge team, we really couldn't do this without them!




A stunning job by all our DT I'm sure you'll agree.  You can see HOW they created their pieces over on their individual blogs.

All that's left is to wish you a Happy Valentine's day, or Happy February, and hope you can join in the challenge this month.

Warmest Wishes,

IndigoBlu Challenge DT
& IndigoBlu Guest Designer.
