#128 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with L for Lattice Card.

We are  now onto the 12th letter of the alphabet which is L. Winners results for #127  are in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Can I please ask that  Winners do acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.
  Please note that challenge is running for 2wks.

      Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course  use your butterfly.   The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.

If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

So lets get started.
The wheel is
Lattice Card.

Your 6 elements are Lapis Lazuli /Laser Lemon/Languid Lavender/Layers/Lace +your Butterfly.

N.b Lapis Lazuli = Deep Blue 
These colours really do exist and are not made up by me!
All the colours I use are from the spectrum wheel and all have Hex RGB numbers.
Lapis Lazuli is a semi precious stone. 

Here is my inspiration for you. 
Card uses Lattice Card/ Lapis Lazuli/ Laser Lemon/ Languid Lavender/ Layers /Butterfly.

You can see more details of the card here on my blog.
Also check out the Card shapes Tab at top of page  to see how to make this very simple Lattice Card.
For this challenge I will except a lattice die or stencil used instead of making the lattice design yourself.

This was a fun challenge. I don't usually do too many layers because I mail most of my cards so it was fun to keep adding on!

Jane Willis said...

Well, I didn't manage the lattice - I think I'm too slap dash! - so I've gone for the theme and colour. Pity as your sample is gorgeous!

AlisonC said...

What a great challenge and great cards. Your lattice is brilliant. I've had a go and just need to finish my card. Fiddly, glue everywhere! x

Janis said...

Wow....your Lattice Card is so intricately woven and lovely!! I'm afraid my weaving skills would be sorely lacking and not fit for display purposes. Love the colors on this fortnight's wheel.
Thank you for another wonderful challenge.
