As part of a styled wedding shoot I did with Lilia Photography and Savage Rose, I got the idea to embellish these fun envelopes from Paper Source with some gold metallic ink. Since custom metallic ink printing is super expensive, especially for short-run print jobs like wedding invitations, we wanted to show an easy and affordable way to add some sparkle yourself. This is a great way to be creative without getting too messy, and it is really hard to mess up. In other words, for those of you out there who claim to not be creative, this one is for you.
• Metallic gold ink pad (or silver if it matches your color palette)
• Small, round sponge brush, sometimes called a Spouncer
• Scrap paper or used magazines or newspapers
Steps 1 and 2:
Ink up the sponge brush by pressing in into the ink pad and rotating it make sure the ink is applied all around. Use the same pressure and motion to then ink the envelope/paper. Continue all over the envelope to create the desired pattern.
Leave to dry overnight, or longer depending on the saturation of the ink. I recommend setting up a make-shift laundry line or drying rack and clothes pinning them up to dry.
