Dreaming of a Serene Silhouette Sunset

serene silhouette paper players button challenge 207

I thought it would be fun to play along with the Paper Players Challenge again this week, and this week’s Challenge #207 is a Button Theme Challenge.


The guidelines were simply to include a button of any sort on your project. It can be an actual button, or it could be stamped, embossed, patterned paper, anything

My card reminds me of the time of year we are at – August – nearing the end of Summer – and kind of a postcard also – from a vacation where you got to spend time watching the gorgeous sunset.

This card used the StampinUp Serene Silhouette stamp – one of my faves to use.  I used a brayer technique to create the background sunset, and a masking technique to create the “sun” and the mountain range.  The “postcard” language was embossed with a folder (can’t remember the name) that has a pretty script.  I just drew on the “birds” with a dark marker, added a couple dark brown candy dots and SU Naturals Designer Button and some twine to finish it off.

I hope you are enjoying your August, some nice weather and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Cheers & Hugs,
