Today I’m sharing Banner Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) from KLM Digital Designs new release. I thought it would be fun to put the new banner stamp inside a banner. This was such an awesome stamp to play with and it comes with 3 different sentiments, “Happy Birthday” as shown here, “Your Awesome” and “Congratulations”.
When I first started colouring this card, I had something totally different in mind for how I was going to colour the scroll. But, once I created the background, I decided to colour it using bluish green tones for the top and bottom of the large scroll.
I printed out the main image twice onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I always print using Grayscale because the image won’t smudge when you go to colour. I found that printing out in black sometimes did. I used my brother Scan N’ Cut to cut around 1 of the images. Then fussy cut it where I still needed to. As I mentioned, once before, I’m still learning how to use my new machine.
For the other image, I die cut around it using Penny Black – Paper Scroll and my Cuttlebug. I coloured in the main image with copics. Then I placed the other image that I had cut around earlier over top of it to use it as a mask. I also used some Post-It Note paper to mask off the top and bottom of the main scroll. I used a Picket Fence Studio’s brush and went over the entire background inside the scroll with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass. Then, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Confetti Stencil over top of everything. I have a large magnetic mat, so I just used some strong magnets to hold everything in place. Then, using the various sized Picket Fence Studio brushes which I labelled in various colours, I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks to create the background. All of the colours are listed below.
I removed all of the masked pieces and then completed the colouring of the large scroll.
Lastly, I attached the entire image to some Recollections Purple Passions cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and added some small balloons which I had die cut previously using Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Set.
