Top Tip Tuesday Guest Designer

Hello and welcome here!!! I'm so excited to share with you that the card I had entered at Top Tip Tuesday (TTT) Shabby Chic Challenge won Special On The Spot Prize!! You can see all the details HERE. As a result of that card, I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the month over on Top Tip Tuesday!!!! How exciting is that!?!

TTT is celebrating its 1st Birthday and so the Challenge is - BIRTHDAY. Here is my card to help inspire you.

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

This type of card is called a Wiper Card...that is the Tip being shared over on TTT this week, and you can find a Tutorial of the Wiper Card at TTT on how to make one yourself.

Here's what it looks like open, the 4 pops out of the top of the card!!

If you choose to join in the TTT Challenge and link your creation, you have a chance at winning a prize from one of this week's Sponsors:

I want to thank Robyn's Fetish for giving me the image I used today...isn't he cute? It's a digital image called Fireman Jim, and he's mine to keep, just for being a Guest Designer. Thanks so much!!

Now for some more images of my Wiper Card.

Here is a top view of the card. I was trying to think of what I should have popping out of the card, and I thought the birthday boys age would be fantastic. I used my Slice to cut the number, and shadow out. I embossed the number 4 with D'vine Swirl and added Stickles to make it look like flames! I trimmed around the base of the 4 so that the excess wiper part wouldn't be seen.

I also wanted to embellish the back of the card...I thought it would be the perfect place where you could write a message to the birthday boy. From the back view the 4 didn't look so nice so using the Slice again, I cut out the shadow for the 4 and then attached it to the back. The Wiper piece is now hidden between the front layers and the back layer.

I used Copics to colour him in, and added a few details with a white gel pen.
Skin-E000, E00, YR00
Jacket-Y15, N7
Hat/Boots-R08, R27, N7...silver gel pen for the badge
Hose-E42, E43...Smooch Gold Lame for the nozzle
Sky-BG0000, BG00

I added Stickles to the swirls and the yellow piece to make it look like fire.

I tried to catch the shine from the silver gel pen and gold Smoochin this photo. I also added a few Stickles to the water spraying out of the hose.
