Watercolor Thanks - Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge

Happy Friday!!

Today is a new sketch and/or color challenge over at Your Next Stamp!  I couldn't help but continue to use my new watercolor pens from Sai in different capacities.  I think I am a long way from perfecting this but it has been fun along the way.

For this card, I am using the colors for this challenge in making a CAS thank you card. I have other designs in mind for similar layouts, but for now, I like using this style with the Fancy Thanks die from YNS.

Using some Ranger watercolor paper, I chose the colors I wanted to use and scribbled onto an acrylic block before using my watercolor brush to pick up the color and place onto the paper.  For the run off side, I added a bit more water to the end and allowed for the run off by turning my paper on its side.  I finished the look with the Fancy Thanks die cut from a piece of card stock that I first ran some Inka Gold over before cutting it out. I then ran that die cut through my Xyron sticker maker so that I could have an even side of adhesive. It was then topped with some Gold Nugget Gumdrops.  This really was an easy card to do in a short amount of time.

We hope you come play along to share your creations with us and for a chance to win a great YNS prize! And we've even added an extra challenge for those of you on the savvy side of social media!  While all stamp companies are welcome in the challenge, we do encourage you to use some of the fun images and products from YNS.  If you do and are on social media, think about taking on this additional challenge:

Social Media mini challenge – Does your challenge creation feature YNS products?  Then take our social media mini challenge to be entered in an extra prize drawing!   In addition to the inlinkz link up below to your blog or gallery, add your challenge creation to Instagram with “#yournextstamp” and “ynschallenge31”, the YNS Facebook page, and/or your SplitcoastStampers gallery with keyword “yournextstamp” and“ynschallenge31” 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 you will 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.  That means potentially you could win twice – once on the blog and then again for sharing on social media!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Friday!
