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, you must use at least 3 colours. You may also add neutrals
This week I got my caffeine fix using a number of coffee themed/named YNS products. My card featured the Thanks A Latte stamp and die set, along with Love Me Some Latte Gumdrops and the NEW Mocha die ink!
This weeks colours and sketch were a lot of fun. I did pull inspiration from some of the colours using the Doodlebug Friend Forest and I put my own little spin on the sketch for this week!
Did you know that YNS now has ink. This card features the new Mocha (brown) and Black Olive die ink, which is also formulated for use with alcohol markers.
To create the sentiment I used the Fancy Thanks die. I cut thin strips of colour paper to match the colours in the pattern paper. I adhered the strips down to a small bit of copy paper. You don't need anything to think. Once I covered enough area for my die, I ran the multi-colours paper through with my die and the colourful thanks is the fun result.
For the sketch/colour challenge # 49, you will have until Thursday October 13th (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 a $15 gift card to the YNS store. If you feature YNS products (it must be the main focus of your project), you will receive an additional $5. When you use a YNS stamp/die, there is 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.
If you use YNS products on your project, you can also take part in the YNS Social Media challenge. Simply showcase your YNS sketch/colour challenge #49 project on Instagram, Splitcoast Stampers or Facebook. Check out the currently challenge post at the YNS blog for more details on the social media challenge.
Have a wonderful and crafty day!
