Default MAR20VSNQ Midnight Gardens ~ Saturday, March 28, 2020 ~ 9 pm ET

Challenge Title: Midnight Gardens
Hostess: berlycece (Kim)
Keyword: MAR20VSNQ
Date: Saturday March 28 @ 9 pm EST


Welcome to our Spring Virtual Stamp Night - we're almost done!
Spring has finally arrived officially in the northern hemisphere, though with social distancing in full mode, it hasn't quite felt like it. It may be a while before we plant flowers in the yard (still chilly in Illinois) but my flower stamps are getting a work out this Florapalooza VSN!

I usually stamp flowers with a sunny sky, but since my challenge is going live late at night local time, I decided to focus on Midnight Gardens. There are some species of flowers which bloom more at night, and they look lovely! Most that I found are white or very pale pastels.
My challenge to you is to create a midnight garden scene using one of the Chalkboard techniques. Stamp on a navy or black card stock (think late night sky) and add color! One technique uses white pigment ink and pastels, the other uses white embossing powder and alcohol based markers. Take your pick!

Check out the samples made by several of our VSN hostesses. A few hostesses made multiple samples, so be sure to look at the full gallery. I can't wait to see what you create!

View the Florapalooza Challenge Thread: Forums at Splitcoaststampers



1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 11 P. M. EST ON Monday, April 6.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the Florapalooza VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Florapalooza - it's usually the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

Fun! I'd never tried the chalkboard marker magic technique. It is fun, I learned a lot and will have to try again when there's more time. (As I've noted earlier, the good thing about the time limit, is there's no time for fussing! )
Here's my card MAR20VSNQ Thankful for You by IndigosMom at Splitcoaststampers
Thanks for looking!

No success with my white ink - the pad was dry and starting to crumble, so I tried using the ink right out of the bottle with a spatula over the solid flower stamps. When dried it resembled cabbage with mold. Switched gears and went with the white EP.

I couldn't get all the chalk off for some unknown reason, but I still think my card turned out well!
