Calling all arty crafty brides and grooms! Today I have a little creative project I think you’ll love – if you’ve a paper fetish and own a watercolour brush this wedding craft idea is especially for you!
Watercolour washing cards for your wedding place settings is a fun, colourful and rewarding craft project – and I’ve written you a step by step guide based on how I do these in my calligraphy studio. The watercolour preparation is really easy for crafty brides; the calligraphy lettering requires a little practice and of course the right equipment which you can buy in my calligraphy starter kit on Etsy. Allow yourself a good few hours (not necessarily all at once!) to learn your way around the pen and lettering styles… and then give these a try!
Hot pressed watercolour paper sheets
