Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
I don’t try to hide my love of flowers. You can spend a mere 5 minutes on this site and know that every curve and texture of the bloom inspires me. So I do love this time of year when our spring and summer couples are indulging in all things floral. We’ve spent years perfecting our hand painted wedding invitation technique and over the last few weeks we have really stretched ourselves creatively. A mix of thick, opaque inks, sheer watercolor and juicy shimmer washes are just some examples of our newest experiments in paint.
Shannon’s bouquet in shades of purple was painted with shimmery inks against a smooth matte finish stock.
I can only share a peek of these incredible invites…but the teams spent over a week painting this richly layered pink and white peonies onto clear plexiglass!
Meryl’s very southern wedding could only be introduced with white magnolia painted save the date booklets. Reminiscent of a Victorian dance card, mean to fit in the palm of your hand.
Shades of white here have me captivated. I especially love the hand drawn lace pattern details throughout! This painting technique is one of my favorites, where we layer brushstrokes of opaque white first and then sheer shimmer – the layering effect is so stunning!
Well I’m off to paint what is left of 9 yards of silk organza! More on that later! XO
