BVCG - Dec 2019 Lettering Challenge - Week 1

Created: December 2, 2019

I usually love challenges and this one is right up my alley. 


ID: "Advent"
Size: 8"w x 4"h

My style of Foundational using a 6.0 Parallel Pen and lots of water on CP watercolor paper, then dropping in Bister inks with an eye dropper (Yellow, red, blue & green). When dry, outlined with a gold Uniball Signo gel pen.

ID: "Baking" 
Size: 7.5"w x 4.5"h

A mish mash of lettering using a 6.0 Parallel Pen and lots of water on CP watercolor paper, then dropping in Twinkles H2 watercolors. When dry, shadowed with a graphite pencil and paper stump.

ID: "Caroling"
Size: 4.5"w x 7"h

Using a ruling pen on black Recollections cardstock and FW acrylic white ink. When dry, colored areas with Prisma colored pencils.

ID: "December"
Size: 4.5"w x 6"h

Using a 6.0 Parallel pen and white ink (Copic Opaque and H2) on black Recollections cardstock. When dry, used the end of a bamboo skewer to add my red or green dots. Filled in some negative areas with the FW Gold paint.

ID: "Elves" 
Size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h

I used Kuretake pens, a different color for each letter on Arches Text Wove paper and then misted with water. Dried, then outlined with a gold gel pen. PS this mister gives a more pronounced water spray...

ID: "Festive" 
Size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h

Wrote the letters with the Prismacolor marker (broad edge) then outlined with the fine tip of the red Zig Writer on Arches Text Wove paper. Doodled with the red marker.

ID: "Grinch" 
Size: 6"w x 4"h

I used Tombow watercolor  markers - brush end in purple first, then with the pink. Misted with the mini mister (a nice fine spray) on Canson CP watercolor paper (rougher side)
