Your Next Stamp Sketch/Colour Challenge # 41 (Jungle Critters)

Hello and welcome to another week of the Your Next Stamp sketch/colour challenge # 39.

Every two weeks there is a new challenge that features a sketch and colour inspiration. Pick the one that inspires you most, or try both for an added challenge. The best part of these challenges is you could WIN a gift certificate to the YNS store!

When using the colour inspiration, be sure to use at least 3 colours. You may also add neutrals.

This week I was inspired by the vibrant colour select. I create a clean and simple card using the cute Jungle Critter stamp and the Fancy Thanks die.

To create the multi-coloured thanks die cut, I started by cutting 1/4 inch strips of cardstock in my selected colours. I took a small cut of printer paper that was large enough for the die cut. I cover the surface of the printer paper with my adhesive. Then alternating each colour I stuck the cardstock strips onto the printer paper. Once the section of my printer paper was covered, I ran this through my die cut machine using the thanks die.

For the sketch/colour challenge # 41, you will have until Thursday June 23rd (midnight EST) to play along. Head over to the Your Next Stamp blog for more inspiration and to link up your creation.

One random participant will WIN at $15 gift card to the YNS store. If you feature a YNS stamp or die (it must be the main focus of your project), you will receive an additional $5. When you use a YNS stamp/die, there is also a chance of being selected as the YNS top pick! The winner and "top pick" are announced on the YNS blog, the Sunday after the close of the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fabulous and crafty day!
