Hand lettering is very on trend right now, and I LOVE IT! I have been watching some videos from Kristina Werner (@starofmay on instagram) who has an amazing talent when it comes to wielding a brush – her hand lettering and calligraphy is so amazingly beautiful!
I have dabbled around with a brush and some watercolours, but i guess it takes lots of practise. Maybe i will keep trying. I seem to do a little better with a brush marker- so i decided to play around and add some hand lettering to this baby card that i was making.
I wanted to keep the baby card to neutral, muted tones so used grey ink for the most of the design. The bunny is from the Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set, and the text stamps are from Hero Arts and Personal Impressions. I coloured the bunny using copic markers and added a touch of sparkle with some clear wink of steel brush pen.
I had some real problems trying to find a pink ink in my stash that was ‘jussstt right’, but had to make do with a light pink that is really hard to see on the video. sorry about that. i have just placed an order for some Ranger Dye Pink gum ball ink – hopefully that will fill the pink void in my collection 🙂
Here is the video – check it out! Have a great day!
