Sketch and Color Challenge #5 – More Inspiration

Hello Everyone!  If you are looking for a challenge to get the mojo flowing then we have one for you!  We are back with more inspiration for Challenge #5.

We like choices here at YNS, so there is a sketch and color challenge to choose from.  Which one will you choose?  Or will you use both?

 

YNSSketch-5

Feel free to swap out shapes – a circle in the place of a rectangle, etc.  We just need to see the basic sketch layout as the inspiration for your creation.

YNS Color Challenge 5

 

If you choose the color combo, be sure to use 3 and feel free to add in neutrals.

Your Next Stamp’s Color and Sketch Challenge #5 is open through January 22, 2015 midnight EST.
