Serene Silhouettes flowers for PPA color and Freshly Made sketch challenges


Serene Silhouettes is a beautiful 4-piece stamp set (page 75 of the SU! Catalog) that is perfect for so many techniques. Here, I simply used markers to ink up the flowers.


I used the Fancy Fan Folder and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for the colored layers, with Early Espresso stitched grosgrain. I pulled the colors from the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge 138. You have until Thursday, July 12, at 11 a.m. (PST) to upload your own creation.

I used the Freshly Made Sketches #42 for my card. You have till Monday at noon to enter this challenge. Here's a closer look.

I hope your weekend is going well! I'm trying to stay cool in our 80-degree weather. Summer has finally begun here. Thank goodness for the fan in my stamping area. It's the only thing making the upstairs bearable!

Happy Stampin'!
