Sketch and Color Challenge #19

*** Check out our July Feature Day Post for your chance to comment and win a stamp set of your choice!!!***

Today a new challenge starts at Your Next Stamp and we would love for you to play along!

So what is the challenge?    Our bi-weekly challenges each have a sketch and a color combo to choose from.   Our challenges are designed to give you the freedom to choose. We know that some days you are looking for inspiration in the form of a sketch and other days it might be a new color combo.   You don’t have to combine the 2 unless you are feeling super ambitious!

Challenge #19 is open through August 6th at midnight EST.   That gives you 2 weeks to play along for a chance to win a YNS gift certificate.   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.   Simply 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.

Let’s check out sketch #19:YNSSketch19

If you use the sketch feel free to swap out shapes or rotate; so long as we can see the basic sketch was your inspiration.

now on to color combination #19:YNS Color Challenge 19

If you choose the color combo, be sure to use at least 3 colors and feel free to add in neutrals.  The names of the colors are based on Bazzill cardstock, but substitute whatever you have that is close to it.

The design team has some creations to share, let’s see how they were inspired!

 Be sure to join in the fun and share your own creation inspired by either the sketch or the colors OR both!  Link up your project through Inlinkz below.
