There’s an awesome class over at Studio Calico using the Lifestyle Crafts letterpress platform. SC has made some rad plates and it’s a bit addicting- not to mention such a rad craft to learn. Although I die over real letterpress, owning a letterpress machine isn’t going to happen anytime soon. The real dealios are huge and heavy like, 2,000 pounds heavy… so I very well can’t put one in my studio. Loving this alternative.
It took me a few times to get the ink amount just right. (LESS is definitely more.) But if you are one that enjoys spending time on details or texture for your projects then you will swoon at each image. It’s just yummy. If you like the taste of 600 gsm, cream, cotton based, letterpress paper! I definitely do. (munch munch!)
PS The navy ink looks great with my Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection! Also love the hot pink, obvi.
