Handmade custom invitations & stationery

If you are not familiar with my Inspired Ink weekly post listen in…
Every week I choose a bouquet, gown, real wedding or anything that catches my eye, to use as inspiration for a new invitation creation. Inspired Ink posts are essentially pages in the sketchbook of my mind – layouts I always hoped to try, particular flowers I have wanted to illustrate, all inspired by the amazing images that can be found in the “blogosphere” every day. So thank you bloggers, brides, photographers, florists and more for giving me such wonderful ideas!!!
Last week Laura E. of Southern Weddings posted Courtney & Chris’s perfectly pink day. I am so in love with the luscious peonies, poppies and not-too-over-the-top-pink color palette. Please correct me if those violet beauties are not poppies!

I created a washy and loose watercolor illustration but then added in accents of black ink and white acrylic to give contrast. I wanted my poppies to mimic the charm and personality of Courtney and Chris’s affair.
I am a Southern Weddings blog fanatic and am very excited about their magazine launching in January. Lara C. and the ladies craft a daily read packed with inspiration, humor and southern style sure to give you much to marvel over for your own day!
