The 30 Day Colouring Challenge is actually going on right now again. I had originally stamped the Mama Elephant Wild Meadow Stamp to practice colouring with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers, which lead to the making of my FIRST WIPER CARD!!
I bought Mama Elephant’s Wiper Surprise Die late last year and I’ve been really itching to try and figure it out. When I saw the demos on Youtube I didn’t really get how it worked and figured that I really just needed to sit down and play with the mechanism.
This is what I came up with:
The floral Wild Meadow Stamp and two of the fairies from Mama Elephant’s Little Fairy Agenda were stamped with Versafine and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder on 140lbs watercolour paper. In no particular order, I use the following Zig Clear Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush to colour the images:
-Faires: 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow, 052 Bright Yellow, 082 Purple, 069 Blush, 083 Lilac, 303 Shadow Mauve, 004 FL. Green, 071 Flesh Color, 065 Mid Brown. I also used Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter on the fairy wings.
-Flowers: 260 Deep Red, 027 Dark Pink, 202 Peach Pink, 026 Light Pink, 070 Orange, 052 Bright Yellow, 050 Yellow, 051 Lemon Yellow, 053 Yellow Green, 044 Deep Green, 047 May Green, 048 Emerald Green, 030 Blue, 031 Cobalt Blue, 036 Light Blue, 081 Light Violet, 080 Violet, and 056 Mid Brown
I die cut pieces for the wiper card out of the same watercolor paper. I fussy cut the images out with my Cutterbee Scissors and trimmed the panel to match the length of the floral image.
I ink blended the wiper panel with Distress Oxide Inks Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Abandoned Coral. I sprayed the panel with water and spattered it with diluted Copic Opaque White and Arabic Gold from my Finetec palette.
I assembled the wiper card using Score Tape. After assembling the mechanism, I realized that the right sided fairy kept catching on the floral border so I cut the wiper mechanism and added a strip of acetate.
To finish up the card I die cut Mama Elephant’s Happy Script die twice out of 110lb white card stock and once out of a warm gold glitter card stock and adhered them together. I stamped, “Wishing you a”, and ,”Day”, before and after the happy script using Mama Elephant’s Happy Everything Stamp set in Versafine and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
