Sketch and Color Challenge #34

Happy Friday!!!  

We have a new challenge starting today and would love to see you join in the fun!

Our bi-weekly challenge gives you a sketch and color combo to choose from.  Pick the one that inspires you, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!  Plus, the best part is you might win a gift certificate to the YNS store by playing along.

Challenge #34 is open through Thursday, March 17th at midnight EST.  One random participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, plus if the winner uses YNS products on their creation they will receive an additional $5.00 on their gift certificate.  We also select our favorite creation featuring YNS products from all participants and announce a “Top Pick”.   The random winner and “Top Pick” will be announced on the YNS blog the Sunday following the challenge close.   Link up a picture of your creation from your blog, gallery, etc. at the bottom of this post and you will be entered to win.

PLUS…if you are using YNS products on your creation why don’t you take the YNS Social Media challenge too ?!  Does your challenge creation feature YNS products?   In addition to the inlinkz link up below to your blog or gallery, add your challenge creation to Instagram with “#yournextstamp” and “#ynschallenge34”, the YNS Facebook page referencing “challenge34” in your comment, and/or the SplitcoastStampers gallery with keyword “yournextstamp” and“ynschallenge34” and be sure to mention the YNS Challenge.   There will be a separate drawing for all challenge projects added to those 3 social media sites during the challenge time period.  If you add to one site then you receive 1 entry in the drawing.  If you add to two your receive 2 and 3 entries if you add to all three.   Remember, this is only for challenge creations featuring YNS products.  The random winner will receive a YNS Store gift certificate for $20.
