One of my favorite projects to date: custom hand lettered client tags for the lovely Kate Ignatowski. When Signora e Mare paper is involved, you know something beautiful is going to happen. I created this gradient gray background with medium gray watercolor. For the lettering, I used a pointed pen and the ink was a cool gray gouache mixed with water, and gum arabic added to thicken the texture (given the paper is handmade and very porous). The perfect added touch for Kate's brand packaging.
