#151 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with H for Herringbone Card.

Winners post #150 is below this one.

Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified  Card shape  all beginning with the chosen letter.

(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
 I will be showing a link to a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards so just look under the letter being used for each challenge. 

The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize. You must of course use your butterfly and the other elements.  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
Herringbone Card.

  Your 6  elements are:
Herringbone Card/ Hemp/Heat Wave/ Hansa Yellow/Hazel
+your Butterfly.

n.b.   Heat Wave = Orange.
Hansa  Yellow = colour of Sand
Hemp  = Brown hairy string.

Please state the elements of Your Choice.
Here is my inspiration for you .

Love the colour palette (am assuming hazel is brown). I will try my best to get something made if/when I finish Hochanda commitments which is slow going with current MS flare up.

Thank you for the detailed color descriptions because I would be lost otherwise. That herringbone card design is intriguing, but also intimidating so I'll have to take a look at the directions and see if it's something I can handle. Spring and butterflies are around the corner, but we had a terrible rain and wind storm last night, so it seems months away. Thanks for another lovely challenge Mrs.A!

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Beautiful inspirations, I have never tried the herringbone technique but seems interesting.
Sadly I have really scraps of time and can never find the time to create something suitable to participate. So sorry. I hope there will be better days for me and enjoy challenges.

Aquarius said...

I seem to be first this time! Think I've used all elements as long as my embossing folder counts as the herringbone element - if not no worries ๐Ÿ˜‰. Some great ideas and inspiration from you as always.

Suzanne H said...

I wanted to be sure and play this time to try out this idea - even though I thought Hansa Yellow was yellow. Somehow, when I walk away from my computer, I've forgotten everything I just read! :) This was fun and even though it's cold and windy here, I was thinking of spring when I made my card. Take care!

Freubelmina said...

Yes! Now it has been possible to link my card.
Thank you for the nice challenge Mrs A.
Lots of love, Wilma xx

Susan Renshaw said...

Managed to take part this time Mrs A!!

Sandy said...

Mrs. A. Thank you for another interesting challenge. I have made a version of herringbone before (similar to your #2 but a little different), so I tried version 3 but with an A2 card so there was a little less room to work with. The colors were kind of tricky, but I believe Hansa yellow, or the color of sand, is there, along with hemp, herringbone, and of course a butterfly.

Hazel (Didos) said...

Love your makes, I hope mine counts as I have used a herringbone stencil, Hazel xx

Carol L said...

Your cards inspired me to play along this time! I love all of the designs you created and the herringbone just pulled me right in! Thanks for the challenge, but I'm just playing for fun :) Hugs!

StephW said...

First time entering your lovely challenge, hope it's okay that I've just stencilled a 'loose' herringbone design! I've added your herringbone tutorials to my 'to do' list x

KT Fit Kitty said...

I made it, Mrs. A! Thank you for your instructions/tutorial - it's much easier than it looks! Your inspiration cards have been beautiful and I'm so glad I tried it. I went with herringbone, hazel, and butterflies (entry 30). Hope you're feeling much better after getting the jab. I've been thinking about you.

Tina Z. said...

this is such a great challenge. thank you for all the inspiration and tutorials.
I hope you are feeling better now.
hugs xx

Lia said...

I am sorry, that you don't feel well after the vaccination and wish you a quick recovery! I don't know when it's our turn, because over here it takes ages.....
Wish you all the best,
Lia xx

Becca Yahrling said...

Mrs. A, I sure hope you are feeling better!! What a horrible ordeal. :-(
Your cards are all amazing and so pretty! I was able to get a card done using your version II pattern - it was a lot of fun to make. I'd love to play for 2nd prize (using herringbone & orange), thank you. And I was able to use the butterfly flourish die that I just rcv'd from my win, thanks so much! I really love this set. ;-)

AlisonC said...

Here I am nipping in at the last minute to wish you well. I hope you are ok now. xxx
