YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #1

Hello Everyone!   

Welcome to the brand NEW YNS BLOG!!!

 

We are kicking off the fun on the New Blog with a NEW Challenge for YOU and some NEW challenge rules!

 
So what has changed?  
 
Our challenges are now bi-weekly.  You have 2 weeks to play along.
 
What’s the challenge?  
 
We are keeping the sketch and changing up the inspiration photo to be a color challenge. Create a project based on the sketch and/or the color combination.  If you choose to go with the color combination use 3 or more of the colors, plus only neutrals.  Link up your creations at the bottom of this post and be sure to link directly to the individual blog post or gallery post.  
 
Is there still a prize?  
 
Of course!  The prize is a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp Store for one random participant!  Any brand of stamps may be used for the challenge, but if YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives an additional $5 gift certificate, for a total of $20!  The winner will be announced on the Your Next Stamp Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.
 
Will a “YNS Top Pick” still be selected?
Yes!  One “YNS Top Pick” will be selected and featured on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.  In order to win the “YNS Top Pick” badge for your blog, YNS stamps/dies must be the focal point of your card or project.
