einem neuen Sketch Challenge Blog.

Jeden Freitag werden wir einen neuen Sketch veröffentlichen, veranstaltet von einem Mädel aus unserem Design Team für Euch zum Nacharbeiten. Wir sind eine Gruppe von Stemplerinnen und Jede vertritt ein Land - so dass wir hoffen, euch mit vielen verschiedenen Stilen und Trends aus jedem Land zu versorgen.

Es wäre großartig, wenn wir Euch Inspirationen liefern können. Es gibt keine Regeln zu befolgen.

Ihr könnt den Sketch drehen, Karten stempeln und alle möglichen Stempel verwenden, die ihr habt - egal ob niedlich oder nicht niedlich - wir wollen alles sehen.
Um an der Challenge teilzunehmen braucht ihr nur einen Beitrag mit Eurer Karte, dem Sketch und einem Link zur Friday Sketchers Challenge erstellen und einen Kommentar mit Eurem Beitrag zu hinterlassen, dass wir alle es sehen können.
Mit "Friday Sketchers" ist es auch erlaubt, Challenges zu kombinieren. Wenn Ihr zum Beispiel die Farb-Challenge von SCS mit dem FS Sketch verbinden wollte, dann tut es bitte und postet unter beiden Challenges.

Wir hoffen, Ihr habt viel Freude mit der neuen Challenge und seit bereit, Spaß zu haben!
