Default MAR18VSNN ~Refrain from color~ Sat 3/24, 8pm ET

Challenge Title: Refrain from color
Hostess: UnderstandBlue (Lydia)
Keyword: MAR18VSNN
Date: Sat, 8pm ET


You know I can't make it easy for you, right? Since this is a challenge about the most colorful part of our lives, I will be flipping that upside down. Your cards must feature plants or flowers that you have not ADDED any color to. You can stamp the flowers, and leave the color in the background, as seen in one sample, or you can embellish plants or leaves on patterned paper, but only with black or white, as shown in my green sample. So put down those markers and watercolors, and think outside the color box!

View the gallery for this challenge: HERE
View the How Does Your Garden Grow Gallery: HERE
View the How Does Your Garden Grow Challenge Thread: HERE


1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Monday, April 2.
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 Garden 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 How Does Your Garden Grow - it's 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!!!

Awesome challenge Lydia. It took me a minute to figure out what I was going to do but it turned out great once it was done. Thanks for the fun challenge.

Here's my first card...it came together pretty quickly as I already had the BG and circle die cut....all I had to do was find some coloured cardstock that would make it pop. I don't usually use green but thought it appropriate with flowers.

Here's another card I've just put together. I had the BG already and wasn't sure whether to use it for this challenge or Misti's but I have another idea for Misti's...LOL.

TFL. Happy day

I wasn't sure where to go with this, till I remembered that I had a piece stamped ready to use for crayon resist. It had a little smudge on it - adding colour to the background and leaving the flowers white dealt with that problem and I love how this came out. Thank you!! Darn, now I think I should have stuck with crayon resist for next week's TLC. I didn't like my first attempt at all.

This background is actually leftover from extras I made using Lydia’s challenge last fall. Worked perfectly for this!

Not coloring was tough! Hope I read it right..I didn't color but I did embellish a little w/ a white pencil. Here's my Easter Egg Greetings. Thanks so much for looking.
