#77 Butterflies +F is for Faux and/or the colour Jasmine.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #76 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you. Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.

(winner of #73)

My name is Monika. I live in Kraków- in the South of Poland. I have full-time job as a librarian :) In my free time I enjoy crafting, reading books and studying foreign languages.

Monika  has chosen 

the letter F for Faux which has been teamed with J for the colour Jasmine

So I would like to see a faux technique on your project. There are lots to choose from on You Tube and Splitcoast Stampers.  These are just a few that I found. Stitching, marbling,buttons,metal,tarnished silver, washi tape, patina, crazed porcelain, tiles, brads,silk and glass. The colour Jasmine is a creamy yellow  and don't forget your butterfly/ies.

You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the theme  letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize.

Here is Monika's  card for you.

Monika used: jasmine colour card,  a beautiful embossing folder, inks and hot embossing (false gold) to make this pretty delicate design.

 Please visit  Monika on her blog Here for more details.
Thankyou  Monika for being my Guest Designer for #77.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Here is my inspiration for you.
I have used faux stitching on the front and a further faux technique inside.

  1. WOW!!Such fabulous cards from Monika and from you Mrs A!! Love, love them! So elegant, sweet and creative both! Great works!

  2. Lovely inspiration ladies! Love the colour choice; I'll have to get my thinking cap on for the 'faux' and maybe flutter on by again later when I've managed to make a card! X

  3. Hi Mrs A,
    congrats to your G/Designer and her card is very wonderful and brutifully created.
    Your card is also very super and what lovely faux stitching.
    Not sure if my card comes under the faux heading as I have created the paper myself so I suppose that could be faux maybe, andI have used the colour in the cenre of my flowers.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Thank you for another super challenge and for the inspiration, both cards are very pretty. Happy crafting, Sandra x

  5. Some lovely DT cards. Not sure if faux quilling qualifies, didn't realise until yesterday that it could be done even if it is digitally!! Thought it was a bit of fun anyway although I do prefer the hands on approach really rather than 'cheating'.

  6. Congrats to Monika as GDT, her card is so pretty! And I love the Faux stitching on your gorgeous card Mrs. A! Thanks for the fun challenge!

  7. Wonderful challenge and great cards shown here.
    I don't know if the yellow colour on my card is the right one, but at least I have som faux stitches.
    Hugs from Switzerland,
    Swissie (Liv)

  8. Amazing inspirations from the DT's and love the themes.

  9. Squeaking in with my usual last-minute entry! Great theme options this fortnight....thank you for explaining what color Jasmine is! :) Very LOVELY cards by you and Monika!! Thank you for another fun challenge.
