Sketch and Color Challenge #9

Happy Friday!

Challenge #9 starts today and we have a new sketch, new color challenge and new inspiration from the design team!  Choose your favorite, whether it be the sketch or the color combo – we always give you 2 challenges to choose from.

Remember, play along and you may just be the winner of a gift certificate to the YNS store!!!  Your Next Stamp’s Color and Sketch Challeng#9 is open for the next 2 weeks through March 19, 2015 midnight EST.

There is just one circle for the sketch this time around and we have added a few rectangles.  Remember that you can rotate the sketch and swap out shapes, such as replacing the circle with a star, etc.  So long as the basic sketch is clearly your inspiration you are good to go.


If it is colors you are looking for then we are challenging you to use this springy Easter color combination!YNS Color Challenge 9

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.


Now on to the fab creations from the design team!

    Love all the awesome inspiration, please note that my sketch is similar, but there is a theory behind it being askew, you will understand when you read the blog… Hope you enjoy the monkey business going on…
