Wiper Card

Anything But a Square
As it folds the dragonfly disappears

I’ve never made one of these before and decided that it was time to try. Its not bad for a first attempt and it fits into the Anything but as Square challenge at Sweet Stamping.

I used a GKD stamp set called the Wetlands to create this and followed two different tutorials found HERE and HERE. Images were coloured with Inktense pencils and I added some shimmer to the dragonfly. It took me a while to get the wiper part correct and I’m not happy with it even now but it works and will have to do. If and when I make another I will have a better idea of how to do it. Even though it isn’t 100% I am happy with the overall result. I think I may give this to my sister for her birthday in July.

    1. Thanks Diana – I am hoping she will. I always try to do something a bit different for her and she keeps them all.


    1. You and me both. We don’t see storks here but we do have great blue Herons and a pair of breeding Sandhill Cranes close by. See the herons often but the cranes are usually well hidden as they aren’t too fond of people. Thanks for liking my effort.


    1. thanks a lot Gayle. For my first go round it isn’t bad and I can already see how to make it easier for myself another time. Practice makes perfect as the saying goes.


  1. I adore it! What a beautiful scene you have created and the perfect choice to add the dragonfly to the wiper, but it is all the other pieces of the scene that had me looking closer, like the silhouttes of plants and the birds in the clouds. It really made the main images the focus!

    1. Thank you for making my day really bright. I love your work and you explain things really well. Having you like something I make is special.


  2. What an amazing card. You’ve done a super job for a first attempt. I love all the detail you’ve put into it. Thanks for providing the links to the tutorials. I’ll check those out.

  3. Thanks Judy – both tutorials are good to watch as it helps a lot to see 2 different people doing a similar idea card. I like Lost in Paper quite a lot as she explains things well, is a great colourist, and has humour in her voice as she goes through things. She also prefers to make her own things rather than buy a special die to make something. I’ve CASEd a few of her designs in the past.


  4. It’s beautiful! I love your pretty scene. Sometimes the movable parts just have to be worked a bit to work correctly/more smoothly. I love that you’re trying so many new things.
