Finished cards. What follows is a description of how I made them and a free graphic.
I attended a lettering demo by Janice Berkebile at Daniel Smith a couple weeks ago. She happened to mention she scanned, printed on an ink jet printer and then painted her letterforms. I was surprised to learn ink jet doesn’t smear when painted with watercolor. Also a little annoyed with myself for not having tested it but I’d previously had an ink jet print smear in the rain.
I decided to make some Halloween cards. I drew a design based on a fabric print. I scanned it and then printed it on watercolor paper. (feel free to right click and save this design to make your own cards)
I painted over the design on 8 cards.
I cut them out and glued them to some plain white cards and created a message for the inside using MS Publisher, as above in the first image.
Happy Halloween. “Wishing you more treats than tricks”!
