This is definitely one of my top fave quotes: “Though She Be but Little, She is Fierce.” And I love writing it in my modern calligraphy script. And damn… it looks so damn good in white ink on black cardstock!
I actually had different version sketches of this quote. And I decided on this simple layout: big margins, big and small words. I have one other design I may try out and will share maybe in a future post.
here are a few close ups:
after deciding which layout I wanted to create from, I used a white fabric pencil to trace it out. Then I used a Hunt 101 nib + Dr Ph Martin’s Bleedproof White ink for he final piece. The last step was erasing the pencil marks.
The cardstock is Astrobright I purchased from my local Wal-Mart. This cardstock by Astrobright is now one of my go-to’s to use. It’s got a nice thickness and smoothness to it. I am planning to get me some colored ones in this brand. a must try for sure!
Well I’ve been prepping for my next classes coming up in June! All three are SOLD OUT!
Today, I will be designing the name cards for each venue. I’m thinking colored cardstock, border punches and ribbons this round. I love changing it up once in awhile. The last time I used ribbons was in February!
Can’t wait to get going with it!
Here are more classes: July and beyond!
have an awesome week! xoxo.
