Cards with a watercolour effect

Beautiful hand lettered motifs and sentiments

Even today, the nicest cards are handmade ones. That’s because their designs can be really personal and unique. What’s more, as you can see in our photo, they don't even have to be posted, because these sentiments and sayings also make an attractive, eye-catching pinboard display! You'll find everything you need for this project in the Colour Happy Big Box from edding – 69 pens in carefully coordinated colours and all shapes and sizes. To achieve the watercolour effect, it's best to use the edding 1340 brush pen, as the ink can be mixed with water. For the hand-lettered sayings, however, the edding 1800 fineliner is the best choice. Both products feature in the Colour Happy Box.
