These are three versions of the ‘Kristen’ lettering style that I developed for my daughter’s wedding envelopes. She loved the style that someone had done and posted online. I tried to ‘copy’ that style, and truthfully it was just someone’s handwriting. I had to develop some of the upper case letters and all of the lower.
The first photo above is what I came up with for her envelopes. I used a flat edge and gold ink on a page in my sketchbook
#2 is what it looked like after I revised some of the letters. I used Dr. Ph Martin’s iridescent copperplate gold ink on maroon cover stock for this practice work.
The final two photos are the monoline version in my sketchbook using a black fine line Faber-Castell pen.
Since I developed this style for my daughter, I named it after her. The ‘Kristen’ style is a combination of my style, what this talented person had shown online, and somewhat copperplate-ish! The lower case is just me and what I remember from learning the Palmer method of cursive in grade school.
Enjoy, and let me know if I can letter your wedding envelopes!
