I haven’t made a banner yet with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Created Banner Kit (Holiday Catalog). Instead I have been making monogram cards with the stencils. What fun! The first one is CASEd from our demonstrator magazine. I used our spritzers with alcohol and reinker (about 20 drops for a full bottle – adjust for how much color you want).
Tip: Hold the spritzer quite far from your stencil for a crisper background. You can also use sponge daubers and ink.
