My son is getting married in the Spring so I wanted to have a party for them. Of course I had to design the invitation, right? Bride and Groom approved! It is not finished yet either...needs a date.
First, "Devon" was written with Pebeo Drawing Gum and set aside to dry. Then "Jorma" was put down with a wide brush and water. Color was dropped into it. Once fully dry, the same techniques were used for the color around his name. Once everything was totally dry, the drawing gum was removed, leaving "Devon" in white. I am thinking of embossing her name in gold on each invite. They will be printed on watercolor paper. The artwork was scanned into my computer and the other lettering was added.
