These bright and colorful watercolor invitations from Ashley Bush Lettering and Design are so fun for a 21st birthday party! And those envelopes? OMG. Ashley used masking fluid and a bright swash of paint to create the most amazing resist technique in the address. Love love love!
From Ashley: This collection was for a 21st birthday celebration! The concept was bright watercolor fun with a big emphasis on the envelopes! I started with the invitation design: I hand painted the multi-colored splash and finalized the design in Photoshop. I also created some custom brush-lettering for the front and back of her invitations.
We carried the colorful painted look right onto the envelopes, but instead of making every envelope the same color scheme I decided to mix and match, utilizing all of the fun colors from the invitation!
The black envelopes gave just the right pop for the bright colors. Using a small, fine-tip brush I lettered the names on the envelopes in masking fluid, brushed the paint on, and finished the address with a white Gelly Roll pen! You can see a video of this process here and if you want to try lettering with masking fluid you can follow my step-by-step tutorial.
