when we last left off with the wedding invitations i had lovingly embossed the names of all our guests on the invitations.
now it was time to add the addresses.
compared to the beautiful metallic copper embossing the copper sharpie looked so "blah". so I took a trip to the berkeley artist supply store. now this place has everything, and at first I was shocked to find their pen selection wasn't much different than what they had at the lovely, but small, elmwood stationary. then I asked to look at the pens locked behind the glass.
talk about a game changer! for a $1 more than the sharpies these artist quality copper pens were exactly what was needed.
with my pens I began the process of addressing the invitations. after drawing lines with a pencil I wrote directly with the pen, continuing my "Art Deco" handwriting.
when erasing the lines I noted that it dulled the copper a bit, so I while I had to go back over it in some places the result was well worth it!
next up: envelope liners!
