Three classes down, two more to go!
The class assignment was to create a waterbrush lettered greeting card.
I went through my paper drawer (why yes, I do have a drawer dedicated to paper) and noticed I had a bunch of scraps leftover from my thesis project and our wedding. I decided to create mini greeting cards from these instead of one card from larger paper. This allowed me to more quickly practice the techniques from class on many cards.
- Paper: Canson Watercolor Paper (for birthday card) and French PopTone (for mini cards)
- Ink: KF Series Sumi Ink and Watercolor
- Brush: Pentel Aquash Waterbrush Pen (set of three)
My Finished Cards
I played with two different versions of cards: one with a script and the other with a very brushy lettering style.
Here is the script card.
Here is the card with the very brushy lettering. I used the word “yay” because I only had small scraps left at this point. I really like the way that these turned out—especially the purple one in the back.
And a Birthday Card
I ended up making greeting card for this class, too. After playing around with the ink alone, I wanted to see how the watercolor worked with the ink. I used watercolor paper so that the paper wouldn’t warp as much. I don’t think the lettering on this is very good but it was fun to make and I learned something new.
