Wiper Card

This is my first attempt at a Wiper Card, you can see the tutorial here. I thought this was a really great idea, sort of along the same idea as a pop up card but a bit different. This is also
my card for The Pink Elephant challenge and the Colour Create challenge. Both challenges had the theme of Summer with the addtion from the Colour Create challenge of the colours blue, sand,silver and black. First of all I brayered the background with Stonewashed and Denim Aidrondack ink and then used Scattered Straw Distress ink to make the sand colour. The images are all from the Tanda Stamps Summer set 1, which I've stamped with Memento black ink. The child sitting on the sand is shaded with Pro Markers then cut out and mounted on foam pads. The eyelets were ones that came with my Cropodile and I thought they were perfect for representing the sun. This was then mounted onto silver mirror card. The kite was also stamped with black Memento and shaded with Pro Markers. The edge punch is a Martha Stewart and the blue card is Bazill. I thought this was a really fun card and will be having another go for sure !
What a beautiful day we've had today and according the the weather man we're in for possible a couple more days. Woohoo ....could it be this is our Summer ! Just wish I wasn't at work for the rest of the week. Fingers crossed it will be kind and give us a good day at the week end too. Here's hoping !
Thanks for looking.
