Planner Friends are the best card – Alison Markham


What I used:

Stamps: Mama Makes Funky Frames, Planner Girl and happy birthday sentiment from Elephant Birthday

Ink: Versafine black onyx, Catherine Pooler eucalyptus

Paint: Blue and yellow watercolour from Kuretaki Gamsai set

Polychromos pencils: Venetian red, cadmium yellow, Pompeian red, light flesh,cobalt turquoise, cobalt green, helioblue-reddish

Card: watercolour card, glitter card

Tools: Stamping platform, scissors, trimmer, water spray bottle, waterbrush, pencil blending solution and blending stubs

How to make:

Step one
Using a piece of watercolour card cut to a 5.5 square, create a water colour background by lightly spraying the card with water and using a waterbrush to apply desired colour. Allow the paint to run and mix in the water on the card. Leave to dry.

Step 2
Stamp the funky frame and mixed media small script stamps where desired using green ink.

Step three
Stamp the planner friends sentiment and the happy birthday sentiment using versafine black onyx ink.

Step four
On a separate piece of card stamp the planner girl, colour her and fussy cut out. I used polychromos pencils, a blending solution and blending stubs.

Step five
Using a 6 inch square card blank, but a piece of green glitter card to 5.75 inches square and adhere to the card blank. Using a way glue stick the created topper to the glitter card. Shape the planner girl around your finger to give her depth. Glue in position with glue gel.
