Traditional cookies designs are not usually my “thing”… but conversation hearts open up endless possibilities on what to write. I went with simple food related topics on happy, bright colors. I didn’t know whether I preferred hand printing with food markers or stamping with “typewriter” font. Typewriter won the day but I have a few of the other too.
I started by using flood consistency royal icing in deep pink, sky blue, electric green, and white to cover heart shaped cookies. I let them dry overnight (8 hours- ish) before handling them again.
I mixed a little almond extract with red red Americolor gel and painted it on the top of my rubber letter stamps. To assure alignment, I Scotch taped the “word” together for even spacing. I experimented doing a few free hand too; that resulted in an old school, quirky typeface look.
