I'm so excited to have been a part of this styled shoot done by Becca Bell of 2b Photography that's now featured in the October 2016 Issue of Beauty, Cocktails, Girl Talk's on-line magazine. My lettering (invitations + place cards) makes an appearance -- and somehow Ann Marie Leveille conned me into playing the Bride again... not a tough sell. ;-)
The modern, jewel-toned theme sent Ann Marie and I naturally down the gemstone, geometric road. I had never made a geometric invite, so that sounded fun. Then I also had the (not) brilliant idea to make a clear version of the invitation. Without the correct means for printing on acrylic, it didn't photograph well... but maybe one day I can design something for acrylic!
My inspiration for the place cards was drawn from the ever-popular trend of sliced gemstone jewelry with gold edges -- made with a gold embossing pen over watercolored background.
I can't take credit for anything else other than the paper and showing up to be prettied up... All of the incredibly talented vendors responsible for everything else are listed below.
