My sister got engaged and is planning a wedding for September! I have been delegated as invitation designer, so I have been working on this alot over the past few weeks. I think I have said before…my sister’s favorite color is purple, so naturally, that is going to be a principle color for her wedding.
The design is ready, and last night I made a first attempt at printing on paper. Sadly, it did not turn out as I had hoped. It might be partially due to the fact that I have lost my craft knife (sadness!), or that the ink pad I got is about as big as my thumb…probably a bit of both. The ink is very uneven, and I doubt that I will be able to finish 85 of these babies with only my tiny pad of ink. Also, I had to use scissors, which made some funky little detailing along the heads of the birds. I think I am going to have to start from scratch. Maybe get a new ink pad and another craft knife. Or maybe I’ll carve the image out of a rubber block instead…I don’t know.
Do any of you have any tips for me??
